Re: Another BritInParis Success Story!

Completely agree. I wasn't even thinking about citizenship and now I'll be swearing allegiance to King Charles in January (and for only £80 out of pocket) - tremendous! I can't thank him enough.

Re: Home Office asking for spouse information in Romein application

Yep.

I hope the caseworker is up to the task, as a Romein application isn't the simplest route to citizenship. But at least they seem to be reviewing it very promptly. I was told six months and...

Re: Buying a used car

Vehicles have registration numbers, which is your license plate number. That seems to be the number that identifies the car and stays with the car even as it changes owner, but I don't believe it's...

Re: Back in the UK - but only temporarily! Tax question

My US employer is carrying on as if nothing has changed, and is withholding the usual state and federal taxes. I think as DurhamLad said, we are supposed to get it back as a refund when we file with...

Re: Back in the UK - but only temporarily! Tax question

You mean will they be withholding the UK taxes in addition to the US taxes? My guess is no. It is a state government and I think they have no idea. I think I will just declare everything on a UK...
