  1. Designed by Congress to snare tax dodgers with funds stashed abroad, the new rules are also likely to hit unsuspecting immigrants and first-generation Americans. Even tax preparers may be caught off guard. "The days of the secret, offshore trust are over," said Richard Luthmann, a lawyer in New York who said he is working with clients from India and Canada on tax disclosure. The rules are "really hitting a lot of unsophisticated persons with international ties," he said. The IRS on Monday published nine pages of instructions for filling out a new form that taxpayers must file with 2011 tax returns due on April 15, 2012. The exact number of taxpayers affected is unclear, but is in the hundreds of thousands. The new form applies to U.S. taxpayers living in the United States with at least $50,000 in assets abroad as of December 31, and to Americans living abroad with at least $200,000 in assets. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/45726975
  2. Thank you, learning all i can! I appreciate your kind words.
  3. I'm from Rio, but I have been in Texas since 1974. What do you think about the news, TonyDownTheShore?
  4. I live in Texas, but I enjoy watching international channels in order to get news from abroad. As I was watching Globo Television News, from Brazil, the reporter said that the Central Banks of the world are joining together to rescue both the European and the international currency markets during this financial crisis. IMO, this is great news! Go RV!
