Re: USA Taxes and Regulations

Obviously you can't claim the US-Chile tax treaty anyway, since (as far as I know) it still hasn't been ratified. So any income paid out to you in connection with this form will probably have 30% tax withholding.

Re: USA Taxes and Regulations

I think one usually encounters that form in connection with US investments (which you might have if the organization paying you were to contribute to a retirement account, but probably not as a contractor). Each broker etc. that's paying you income/gains from US-based funds (as opposed to funds inve...

Re: USA Taxes and Regulations

The situation you describe is a lot like mine, except that I work directly for the organization based in the US (and it's treated as an International Organization in Chile, but that should be irrelevant here). I only pay US taxes when I'm visiting the US for work occasionally and only file a US tax ...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

My daughter's test results arrived after about 1.5 days in La Serena, as of about 10 days ago.

Yes, I believe I saw something in the BBC about the virus being detected in sewage in Italy. Ah, here it is: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-53106444. But Spain in March is a bit of a change of story!

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

The total accumulated deaths as a proportion of resolved cases has also been holding steady at 2-3% recently. Let's hope it doesn't start to increase a lot as all the hospital beds & ventilators get used up, which is probably coming in June AFAICT.

now everyone returning must complete 14 day quarantine regardless of where they flew in from.
Right, it seems this was just news of an upcoming measure until today but now they've actually implemented it.

Re: Chilean Borders To close Wednesday, March 18th

The one thing I haven't found yet is the order to close the border. I wonder whether that simply follows on from this, from way back on 27 Feb., using existing powers? https://www.diariooficial.interior.gob. ... 734494.pdf.
