  1. I am not trying to get in a argument with you over FBAR. What am I missing? Edit: Disregard. After reading the rest of the post I see I am not missing anything. As far as an IRS audit I could care less as my taxes are correctly filed each year.
  2. Why should FBAR territory be avoided if at all possible? It takes me about 5 minutes to file on line. Am I missing something?
  3. I think the best solution is to have B800,000 in the bank then everyone is happy and you save $50 US embassy fee although I think the banks charge a fee for their letter too.

    owner run hotel in Chang Mai

    You can get a decent room at the Chiang Mai Gate Hotel for around B900. They have a nice pool and a pretty good buffet breakfast is included. Google the hotel for details, Wife and I have stayed there many times.
  5. When we depart Thailand on 7 Sept. her passport will be valid until 6 March 2019, about 6 months. So she wont have any problem entering the USA?
  6. My Thai wife and I will be visiting the USA on 7 September and returning on 28 October 2018. Her Thai passport expires on 6 March 2019. Will she need a new passport for this trip?

    My guess is you're probably a Pizza Hut customer.

    Well if you ever get to Lampang then try the pizza at Long Jim New York Pizza and you will see what the best pizza in Thailand is like. Or if you go further north to Chiang Mai stop by The Dukes for the second best pizza in Thailand.

    What's your cost of living here in Thailand?

    We own our home and both cars are paid for. When you figure in both health insurance for wife and myself, auto insurance for 2 cars and all the other living expenses it cost us around B 75,000 a month. We don't try to live "cheap" but we don't piss money away either.

    Do you know if they have parking or is it what you can find on the street?

    Hops Brew House on Beach Road near the Royal Garden Mall makes a good pizza.
  12. The FBI enforcing prostitution laws.
  13. I think that would be a great idea.
  14. Not true. My wife and I have been together for 30 years and she is just as nice now as she was when l met in 1987.
  15. Maybe that was your own personal experience but certainly wasn't mine.
