During the first quarter of 2014, 1,001 people appeared on the latest list of renunciations from the Internal Revenue Service. That’s the second highest figure ever — eclipsed by one quarter last year — and a nearly 50% jump compared with the first three months of 2013.
Last year a record 2,999 people were on the list. If the first-quarter pace continues, the figure could top 4,000 in 2014.
