    Bank account

    I feel your pain, bank accounts in Argentina are a major hassle. If you open a HSBC premier account, min $100K USD deposit, my understanding is you'll have access to your funds in that account in Argentina (or anywhere in the world). An other option is to open a Charles Schwab checking account...

    Place for large family

    If you feel the US is headed for disaster, I'd say Argentina will most likely pave the way. Chile is a much better bet for financial stability. Colombia is definately headed in the right direction, but its the lone country surrounded by a bunch of places that could soon collapse. If you want...

    Paying with USD

    betts, Some things are priced in dollars, especially the goods and services targeted at foreigners, but stating that "everything" is priced in USD is not true. If you don't want to pay dollars for these goods and services simply ask to pay in the currency you prefer. I am sure you'll come to a...

    US State Income Tax Question - File or Not?

    Yes, you absolutely have to file. I've lived outside the states for years as a cal resident and each year had to file state. Even if you visit california for a couple of weeks, as a california state resident, you are subject to taxation. Isn't that wonderful! I learned my lesson and quickly...

    Married to Argentine and my Federal Taxes

    I could be wrong, but that was the advice given to my by my lawyer. If I recall, since was married while on a tourist visa in Argentina, the US govt would not consider it valid (vice versa my wife in the USA). I think if both people have legal perminant residence in the country they intend to...

    Married to Argentine and my Federal Taxes

    I am not a CPA, but I did marry an Argentine. I am assuming you are a US citizen and your wife is Argentine. If you married in the USA in 2008 you can claim her as a dependant/spouse/joint (if she truely is). If you married in Argentina and NOT in the USA I don't think you can b/c (i am told)...
