Re: How much did you pay for your medical procedure?

I can't stand it any longer. I actually live here and I have never heard anyone say 'San Fran'. It's a horrible expression. It's like saying you live in Mode or work in Sacra. Why are people so lazy...

Re: Baseball

Is that like 'runing the bases'? They had that at the AT&T Park last Sunday. I think you are just free to walk or jog round the bases as the park is open to the public. But I haven't tried it myself...

Re: Foreign earned income exclusion - federal and CA

Actually, we would still owe tax even after using tax credits, because we could not deduct all of it, even though our UK tax rate was higher than the US tax rate. You're right, it is very complicated...

Re: Foreign earned income exclusion - federal and CA

Yes, I believe so. I actually used TaxACT to do my returns, and the software generated the federal form 1040 and the California form 540NR. I was prompted to select either the full residency or...

Re: Foreign earned income exclusion - federal and CA

Thanks for taking the time, bippy. Perhaps it's something to do with being a new user? I can see you only have one post so far. Would you be so kind and post your reply again?

Many thanks.
