Re: How to become fluent in Spanish

Why bother? Just lean to say "Let go of my net" in Mandarin.

Re: FBAR reporting and AFP&AFC

For FBAR purposes, you're supposed to report every account over which you have ownership of or signature authority that exceeds $10K anytime during the year. This has no effect on taxation. I don't know what the IRS thinks about AFP's. That's a question for a tax pro.

Re: FBAR reporting and AFP&AFC

FBRA's must be filed on line with FinCEN, the Financial Crimes Reporting Network. Sounds ominous but most filers, late or not, breathe the clean air of freedom. You may not be able to file early years. There are a few programs in place to bring yourself into compliance with very little or no penalti...

Re: Expat Selling Chile Business... tax options

How do you define "Expat"? Are you a USA citizen living outside the USA or did you give up your USA citizenship?

Gold pays no dividend. You have to pay to keep it safe.
Unless you’re an active trader, willing to risk thousands for a quick gain of a few dollars, stay away.
If you are fascinated with the element, buy a necklace or ring of 18 or 22 carat gold and enjoy it every day.

Re: America on Fire

The election has been decided but no one knows the outcome. Former Vice president Biden can walk outside in is underwear and shoot his shotgun into the trees and it would not matter to the voters who have decided not to reelect the President. Conversely, the President can pay the farmers, ignore the...

Re: America on Fire

Admins fathers story is the way smart people bribe and are bribed. The offer is made at the first meeting when the person is not ready to record the bribe attempt. Any future attempts to get the person to offer it again must be done carefully. The person offering the bribe may be recording the conve...
