Re: Getting NINO after entering with Article 10 Card

Re: Getting NINO after entering with Article 10 Card

Re: UK Mortgage Questions

Oops, missed that.

The currency movement is a huge unknown, so OP might look up the value of the house on the date of purchase...

Re: UK Mortgage Questions

Given that the house is lived in by the OP's mother then selling right now is probably not an option.

I don't think there will be any tax implications in the USA until the house is sold. ...

Re: $140 debt in Australia but I have moved back to the UK.

The OP joined last month, made 2 posts and hasn’t been back on the site in over a month. I think he has seen all the advice he wants to see.

Re: Dual Citizenship and taxes

Re: Dual Citizenship and taxes

I’m pretty sure that the SS still has to be reported on the US tax return. A great many US residents don’t pay tax on their SS. It is reported on line 5a and the taxable amount, $0, reported on line...

Re: Moving back to the UK didn't bother me

We also moved back and felt like not much had changed. We moved back to the same small town our children were born in and where we still had old friends & neighbours. This was after 29 years away,...

Re: How do the osbournes get away with U.S immigration?

Royalties are passive income just like dividends, pensions etc. They are reported on Schedule C so can’t be excluded as FEIE. Only income reported on line 1 of the 1040 can be excluded using FEIE....

Re: How do the osbournes get away with U.S immigration?

The relevance in his situation is that he has a residence in the UK as well as the US so he has to go through the domicile test to determine which country has primary taxing rights. If he spent 6...

Re: How do the osbournes get away with U.S immigration?

I’m sure he has a 6 figure income but none of it will be earned. No P60 for him these days. Overseas income from pensions and investments does not get excluded using FEIE. (I have UK pensions and...

Re: How do the osbournes get away with U.S immigration?

I thought Keith Richards was only British, so it is important from a UK tax perspective to declare his domicile to avoid paying UK taxes.

I am a USC and it is important for me to declare my...

Re: How do the osbournes get away with U.S immigration?

Being domiciled in the USA means that is where he pays his taxes. People can have homes in multiple countries but where they are domiciled is where they primarily pay taxes.

Re: In the process of moving back to the UK

Since you have been away for 18 years you possibly have savings in mutual funds? If so then no issues with those funds inside retirement accounts such as IRAs, but outside IRAs I would consider...

At least the good thing is that you only planned to initially work there for 1 school year.
