Re: Working in Saudi Arabia and taxes in home country

If you don't have a home in the USA, why would you pay state tax? Couldn't you remotely "relocate" in the USA to a state like Nevada without state income tax?

Re: What is a UK BTEC diploma worth in the USA?

It'll get you some lower level university credits, as will A levels. So that could cut some time off taking an associates or bachelors degree. As others said you'll have to get it officially assessed...

Re: Birthright Citizenship and Trump

There's another part to this problem that no one seems to be talking about. Why can US citizens sponsor their parents for immigration? What other Western country allows that? I know in Australia and...

Re: What's your secret tv show obsession?

I love 90 Day Fiance, I hardly watch any tv but I never miss that. Even better than the show itself is the Facebook page, with the bitchiest comments section I've seen in ages.

Re: Setting up a US bank account

When I first moved to the US I set up a Wells Fargo account with my green card and social security number. I didn't need any proof of address. They were very nice so I've stuck with them since.

Re: How to obtain medical Records from outside the UK

Don't count on the NHS having your vaccination records, they lost all my medical records prior to 2005. As the others said, you may need more jabs, no big deal, just more money! (as always)

One of my good friends was a teacher in Clark County for years but has now left. There's a reason there's a shortage of teachers in NV and it's not just the wages. Terrible school system to work in.
