    Filing U S Tax Return Online: Foreign Exemption And A C A

    Thanks so much, Steve. I had to search for the Foreign Income Exclusion to find it in the program. Am going back through it now. Yes, I put my Argentine address, etc. etc. And yes, the last part you talk about with the health care coverage was fine like you said. Thanks again, I appreciate it.

    Filing U S Tax Return Online: Foreign Exemption And A C A

    Hi Steve. I'm currently filing with TaxAct. One question. You wrote: "The program also asks is you would like to claim the foreign earned income tax exemption." Is this only with the Deluxe edition? I didn't see that option in the free edition. Thanks so much.

    Proof Of Residency In Us For Ayuda Familiar

    Anyone have any recent updates on what to use for proof of residency for ayuda familiar? At Banco Frances last year they let me use bills in my father's name and his driver's license, but now they say they need more. They suggested he get a letter from the Argentine embassy in the U.S., but I...

    Conmen On Mercadolibre Getting More Creative.

    This just happened to a colleague at work. They JUST called her from the bank telling her the envelope was empty. An iPhone 5s 32gb free-willingly out of her hands... thought I'd bump it if it helps anyone else out. DO NOT sell costly items to users without a reputation! And if someone says...

    Tips For Broken Iphone 5S

    A guy at work had a similar problem with his 5s. It kept dying and finally decided to go to phone heaven. He called Apple and they told him that there was a known issue with the 5s. His is still under warranty - only he has to find someone who's going back to the States to go exchange it at...

    Furnished Apt In Almagro

    I've got your back, splattermatter. We are owners and have a large 1BR apartment in San Telmo that has been occupied for almost 3 years straight for about what you're asking and have only rented it in dollars to very, very happy long-term tenants (6 months and over 2 years) who would write a...

    Weekend House Sales By Organizers In Buenos Aires

    They're good to know about, I agree. But yes, I stopped going to these. I went to several when we were looking to furnish a rental apt. and my experience pretty much resembled lucha54's. It's a great service if you're selling, but as a buyer I felt it was a waste of time. I remember thinking the...

    Papel Manteca / Parchment Paper

    I buy it at the chino across the street and have never had any issues. I'm an avid baker and don't use it for cakes. Just cookies. For cakes I just use cooking spray or oil and then a light dusting of flour!

    Hi Gringoboy, so your birthday card went to the local post office and not to your house? I'm assuming you got the paper saying you had to pay 40 pesos?

    Inernational Post-Vol 2 Part 13

    Hi everyone, can anyone confirm if in the last month they have been charged $40 pesos to receive a plain old letter from abroad? Not certified or DHL or anything special. Just a plain, old letter... I know of someone who was and I was surprised not to see anything about it here on the forum.

    Dealing With In-Laws When Flying Abroad

    haha, I would say the same thing. Thankfully my husband has no interest in consumerism. I shop for him almost as much as my child because he will wear his stuff until they're rags. And this really is a topic that I think affects a lot of us. It has happened to us, too. Fortunately I'm not the...

    Are The Price Increases Affecting You?

    I like people's different cutting-back strategies. Mine: 1) I started using the city's yellow bikes to come to work instead of the Subte. I love it, except that it's hard to get a bike in the afternoon leaving Microcentro. I need to take my own bike to get fixed and start using it (but would...

    Feelings Of Safety And Security (Crime In Argentina)

    Ferluis, this has been discussed to the hills (not that you can't keep discussing it if you'd like) But you might be interested to read through other posts. Just quickly typing in "crime" and "statistics" together in the search bar will give you a lot of different discussions.

    Getting Married In Argentina, Translator Requirement?

    I don't remember anyone saying anything about an interpreter when we got married in 2010. I guess I passed the test? Although afterwards I felt very selfish for not having thought to hire one anyway, because my poor family understood zero. I think my husband's aunt ended up whispering her own...
