I want to keep Florida as my state of residence so I can continue to vote for the President.
I don't want to claim Guam as my residence, but know I will have to pay tax on my rental property.
And, I don't want to pay other income tax to Guam, but to Florida (that does not have an income tax).
I see it's 8 PM there, I didn't expect such a quick response.
By the way, I grew up in Phoenix! My dad still lives there. My mom now moved to Gold Canyon.
Great explanation! Thank you.
Now I see that SCRA was what I had a question about regarding my retiree status (although I didn't know the term SCRA, so thank you again).
I'll be sure to keep you on my short list of lawyers to contact when the need arises. I'm sure I'lll have questions when I start a business in the Philippines. Is this an area you'd like to field questions?
Maraming Salamat Po!
