    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

    Importance of income indication on TM6 Arrival Card

    I leave all those blanks, blank, have never entered anything for the last 20++ years, no consequences, it seems. 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

  17. The traveler isn't applying as a potential worker, just as a tourist. Perhaps that means the block can be left blank? Guess we'll find out when Jenny responds later. Mac

    Old driver license (paper, pink colour), no expiry date

    If it doesn't have an expiry date, it might be one of the ol' time lifetime licenses, and then probably still good. FYI, my pinkish license has an expiry date, it was issued in 2518, 1975, valid for one year. Got one of the plastic 5-year licenses now. Mac

    hernia operation

    Open hernia surgery, agree, hospital stay may be short, but recovery at home perhaps 2-4 weeks afterwards. I've had two, both done at the old Bangkok Nursing Home, the 2-story wood buildings (Great!!), 1983 and other side in 1990. No idea what was the cost then, but that'd not matter now. Mac

    US tourist visa for Thai wife

    First off, where do you live? Here in Thailand? Renting? Quite often the interviewing ConOff will be looking at the situation in Thailand of the boyfriend/husband and his status here. The assumption being that if it looks like he'll return to Thailand after the U.S. visa, the wife/GF will also return. Masc

    Engineer to replace belt on tumble drier

    Try POWER BUY, since they seem to sell them, they might also do service. https://www.powerbuy.co.th/th/home-appliance/washing-machines/dryers/l/brand:indesit?gclid=Cj0KCQjw4_zVBRDVARIsAFNI9eB1jK0-c1O4rII8YT3_2XcWBMs3_bMoFy_oLU301Qrkr_9xvS9RunwaAsZTEALw_wcB Mac
  24. Thian SCB does have auto monthly payments. I've arranged this up at the Wang Muang branch for payment of electricity and TOT internet access. Just got a form from the bank, dropped it off at the vendor, back to the bank. Bills paid automatically. Mac
