About the Committee

The Committee on Foreign Activities of U.S. Taxpayers (FAUST) focuses on tax policy affecting the foreign operations and investments of U.S. based taxpayers. The Committee proactively proposes changes in tax policy, and also comments on proposed legislation and regulations.

Message From The Chair

FAUST is seeking new members to join our ranks and be active participants. We welcome new members to join us at our meetings and to participate in drafting comment letters. We are currently working on several comment letters and are eager to begin working on additional letters. If you are interested in working on a comment letter in an area within the jurisdiction of FAUST, please attend our next meeting.
