  3. Purchased 2017 Nmax this month but taking it easy during engine break-in. Currently have put only 300 km on the scooter in two weeks. I also have a PCX 150 that I purchased new three years ago. The Nmax is effortless and fun to ride and more comfortable in parking lots and running between cars at slower speeds. On road at higher speeds feel no difference between the two with handling. On the performance side the NMAX feels pretty lively from a stop when compared to the PCX. Combined with the responsive throttle the NMAX is a good for stop-and-go traffic just like the PCX. Nmax suspension feels a little stiff compared to the PCX but handles two up better than PCX with stock suspension. Nmax braking power comes from front and rear disk brakes including ABS and is far better than brakes on the PCX. I always thought brakes on PCX were okay but Nmax has big edge here. The Nmax seat is comfortable but I have not taken on long ride to test. Although the seat is wide it is shorter than the PCX but passenger did not say it was uncomfortable. Passenger liked overall ride feel of PCX better. I feel a slight vibration in handlebars and see in mirrors at different rpm's on Nmax while the PCX is vibration free. Only time will tell if this goes away after engine break-in. Overall, I think the PCX provides a smoother ride on the roads we have in and around Pattaya but something about the Nmax makes it a joy to ride. I will be keeping both.
  4. I agree with skatewash that Thailand interest should have been reported. The 200k you mentioned is for FATCA threshold to file Form 8938. Sent from my SM-G750F using Thaivisa Connect mobile app

  7. Lived in Thailand since 2003 at which time bank, brokerage and credit cards accounts were given my Thailand address. Since 2003 I have never had US address and never any problems. After a few years I cancelled all but 2 credit cards because they were never used. Sent from my SM-G750F using Thaivisa Connect mobile app
  8. Not owing taxes and filing requirements are two different issues. If you had been filing you would have run across Form 8965 which is the health coverage exemption form. Here's some reading you need to do. https://www.irs.gov/individuals/international-taxpayers/u-s-citizens-and-resident-aliens-abroad It you have foreign bank account or accounts that total more than $10,000 in total you are also required to file FBAR. Here is more reading you need to do. https://www.irs.gov/uac/newsroom/taxpayers-with-foreign-assets-may-have-fbar-and-fatca-filing-requirements-in-june If you haven't already you need to download one of the tax software programs from TaxAct or TurboTax just to name a couple. They will walk you through the IRS minefield so you don't miss any forms. You can also download software package for previous years if you want to sort everything out before they come calling. Keep in mind the US Treasury/IRS have access to bank account information in Thailand through an agreement so make sure you also report any interest earned.
  9. Have you thought about using NAS? Sent from my SM-G750F using Thaivisa Connect mobile app

  15. If you can't get help from the the link below then you have only two options. 1. Hire a lawyer if you feel you have a case. 2. Forget it and move on with your life. http://oig.ssa.gov/report-fraud-waste-or-abuse/fraud-waste-and-abuse
