International Tax Blog, 2017 Second Quarter Published Expatriates – Second Highest Ever:

Today the Treasury Department published the names of individuals who renounced their U.S. citizenship or terminated their long-term U.S. residency (“expatriated”) during the second quarter of 2017.

The number of published expatriates for the quarter was 1,759, which is the second highest quarterly number ever (second only to the fourth quarter of 2016 which had 2,365 published expatriates).  The number of published expatriates for the first two quarters of 2017 has been 3,072 (1,313 + 1,759).
