    IRS TINs

    Just noticed this item on the U.S. Embassy www site. Some AmCits I know have wives with TINs rather than SSNs, fine, if they file a Joint 1040 return. However, some have incomes that don't come up to the level where a 1040 is required, thus, don't file one. Oops, see below. https://th.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/local-resources-of-u-s-citizens/notaries-public/ Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) Applications: The IRS is implementing significant changes made to the ITIN program under the PATH Act of 2015. The new law means that any ITIN not used on a federal tax return at least once in the last three years will no longer be valid as of January 1, 2017 for use on a tax return unless the taxpayer renews the ITIN. In addition, all ITINs issued prior to 2013 will begin to expire this year and taxpayers will need to renew them.The first pre-2013 ITINs that will expire are those with middle digits of 78 and 79 (Example: 9XX-78-XXXX). The renewal period for these ITINs began October 1, 2016. The IRS began to mail letters to this group of taxpayers in August to inform them of the need to renew their ITINs in order to file a tax return, and explain the renewal steps. The IRS will announce the schedule for expiration and renewal of ITINs that do not have middle digits of 78 and 79 at a future date.If taxpayers have an expired ITIN, not renewed before filing a tax return next year, they might face a refund delay and be ineligible for certain tax credits, such as the Child Tax Credit and the American Opportunity Tax Credit, until they renew the ITIN. More information is available on the ITIN page at IRS.gov.
  2. Sure don't think she'll have any problem, and no problem to mention you as supporting her on the trip. Will you also be coming back after the two weeks with her? Same flights? Even better. You might ask the "helpers" there at U.S. Immigration on arrival if it's OK for her to go with you through the U.S. citizen queue, usually faster than the foreigner's queue. Mac

  7. Note, if you go to Cambodia for your out-in, you can save a page with an eVisa: https://www.cambodiaonlinevisa.org/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&gclid=CjwKCAjwlIvXBRBjEiwATWAQIkvX29ItpuydecE-qXSxRbrRuREUZgIONMmQRyuET0tW7Rijqj8PohoCPGwQAvD_BwE Mac
  8. Then there are the 20,000+ Thai "volunteers" who fought in Laos, mainly against the NVA, 1971-'74. Wonder if they'll receive this allowance. They're represented by the UWA 333, the Unknown Warriors Association 333. Name chosen because they're largely unknown to the general Thai population. Mac

  11. And, it may be like several crossings to Laos in the north where it's only available for locals on both sides. Time will tell. Mac

    Laryngopharyngeal Reflux

    Adult Onset Asthma? That's what I have, identified about five years back, and well controlled by SYMBICORT 2x a day. My doc at Vibha Hospital also put me on SERITIDE for a spell, but she put me back to Symbicort a couple months ago. I do have a Ventolin inhaler in my bag for, as they indicate, "emergencies" but have not had to pull it out for several years now. Mac
