News and Events, Questions and Answers


Sharing Info From The US Consulate Meetings - I had car trouble and was unable to attend either meeting in La Paz nor the Cabo meeting. Would someone who went please share the information either here on the Baja Western Onion, or email me. - Rhoda Jacobs, barakabaja [ - a t - ] gmail.com, 612-157-6088 (cell)

Information on Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR) - Courtesy La Paz Gringos - Hola todos: Just got this note from my accountant (a CA, or Chartered Accountant, which is the highest accounting designation in Canada) in Ottawa, On. He has US Citizens as clients. This does not affect me or other Canadians, but it sure affects US Citizens. Please, don't shoot the messenger nor write to me for clarification. Just Google it yourselves and do your due dilligence and ask your accountant. My accountant specifically asked me not to give out his e-mail address, for obvious reasons. He is just a great accountant who hates to see people pay more taxes than they have to pay. His message to me is below:

If you want to see something spectacular (and Verrry Scary), Google the US FBAR rules and read a few US tax lawyers' websites + the IRS website.

Just look at the info that US citizens must file re their non-US bank, brokerage, RRSP, TFSA, RESP and other bank accounts....And the Penalties......up to 50% of the highest balance in the account! I anonymously called the IRS's FBAR hotline: The balances even include transfers. So, if you have a $400,000 RRSP with CIBC and switch it in the middle of the year to TD Bank, then you Must Report Both $400,000 Balances That Year, And Face A Potential Penalty Of Up To 50% On The $800,000! Another Example: If you had $650,000 in your bank account for a day or two because you bought a house and the financing proceeds went thru your chequing account: You Must Report the $650k on the FBAR, and the late filing penalties will be applied to that balance!

FBARs must be filed for every year back to 2003. All foreign accounts must be reported. The penalty is based on the HIGHEST balance during those years. Going forward, the FBAR must be filed annually by June 30. The US has an amnesty program, IF all conditions are met, there will be no penalties. But the fbar reports must be received in Detroit (not merely delivered BY AUG 31)

I am just finishing up bailing out 2 US citizens before the Aug 31 deadline....The "midnight oil" hasn't stopped!

Most US ex-pats have no clue about this. And the US is imposing laws that, by 2014, will require all foreign financial institutions to report the bank accounts of US citizens to the IRS. So, better to file the FBARs under the amnesty program, than face the severe penalties that the IRS may impose if THEY catch "YOU". This won't affect you (Louise), but you probably have lots of friends in Mexico and Vancouver who are US citizens...Scream this at them Now!. On his website, one US tax lawyer refers to this a "imposing the death penalty for jaywalking".
I wrote back to him to ask whether this applies only to US citizens living in Canada or to all US citizens, regardless of where they live. Here is what he said:
It applies to US citizens Anywhere in the world. Canada was not specifically singled out. After the amnesty expires, the IRS will be applying the SAME rules and penalties to US citizens who have long ago established their lives in another country, with bank a/cs, investments, RRSPs, etc AND who properly report all their foreign and US income on their 1040s, as to Resident Americans who stash $ millions offshore and don't report the income.
I don't pretend to know anything about US taxes nor Canadian taxes, but my accountant sure does. My accountant thought that since Max and I have many US friends and acquaintances in Mexico and Vancouver, I should let them all know about FBAR and the need to file by August 31st.

For your information the acronymns RRSP (Registered Retirement Fund) is the Canadian Retirement Savings Plan (where the government allows you to put money into this account tax free then taxes you when you pull it out. There is an equavilent in the US); RESP (Registered Education Fund) is the savings plan for education; TSFA??? I haven't a clue. - Luiza, La Paz

Anyone Flying to the States Soon? - I have 3 stamped letters I would really appreciate someone mailing for me. Gracias. - Pam Cobb, senoracobb [ - a t - ] yahoo.com, 612-102-7982

La Paz English-Speaking Alcoholics Anonymous - Sundays at 6 p.m. (men’s meeting); Mondays at 6 p.m. (open meeting); Thursdays at 9:30 a.m. (open meeting). Meetings open to anyone affected by alcoholism and are held at Crossroads Christian Fellowship, 3124 Abasolo between Sonora and Sinaloa (next to the DISH TV store across the street from Norteña restaurant/Coca Cola sign and the car rental office). For more information, contact: Susan at 125-4649, susaninlapaz [ - a t - ] gmail.com; Leo at 129-3293, leo.eklund [ - a t - ] gmail.com; or Frank at 612-154-1050 (cell), zorba1360 [ - a t - ] yahoo.com

Package Shipping Services - Courtesy La Paz Gringos - (Summarized): Hi everyone, I have just moved to the area and need to get an important item from the states asap. Does anyone have info on expedited services such as Fed ex? - Rocky

Redpack is cheaper than dhl and is good ... states asap. Does anyone have info on expedited services such as FEDeX and UPS? - Tanya

I have had good luck with UPS. Not cheap but the package does get here in about 3-5 days. If you are shipping up to the states be sure and take your package to the customs office before sealing it up and taking it to UPS. The customs office is just around the corner from the UPS store. No charge for the customs inspection but it must be done before UPS will ship. - John

On abasolo if you are driving towards Walmart, between Sonora and Sinaloa street you will see DHL on the left side. Redpack is around the corner to the left on the right side. - Tanya

Rocky, I just signed up with a service out of San Diego, and am having some stuff sent to me here, they were highly recommended by good friends. Go to www.ACV.com.mx. They responded right away and the cost for delivery is very fair, I think. - Gary

Here is a google map showing the location of the Aduana (customs) office on 5th of Feb. Prepare & address your package but leave it open so it can be inspected. The Customs officer will seal it and supply a slip for you to take to DHL, UPS or whatever courier company you choose. - Sheryl
- La Paz

Road From Cabo To TS - I drive from Cabo to TS several times a week for business. Of course, the road is under construction and one expects tough conditions, however, I believe a little bit of preventive work would vastly improve driving conditions. Alert for main contractor: Dragging a fence section with some weight on it behind one of your trucks would even out the ripples on the dirt roads that are threatening to shake all vehicles from whole entities to separate parts. Thanks for any consideration of the driving public. - Name Withheld By Request, Cabo San Lucas

Twin Mattress Needed - I've got this great tiny room set up with A/C now to help make it through the summer. All I need is a good twin mattress. With no truck, I can't meet the need at CostCo. If you have a mattress or a truck that will be going to CostCo and back, please, please, please... I'd pay, I'd make you cookies, I'd be really grateful. Thanks, Janel 145-0073 - Janel Beeman, janelb3 [ - a t - ] yahoo.com, 145-0073

Meet The Chef, Jose Uribe of Il Giardino. - Jose is from San Sebastian, Spain, but is a graduate of the New York Culinary Academy. In San Sebastian, the undisputed gourmet capital of Europe, he worked as a chef in Arzak which has three Michaeline stars and Zuberoa, which has two. In Mexico City he taught at the Ambrosia Culinary Academy. From there he was invited to Todos Santos to be a guest chef at a local hotel.

He and his wife, Carmen Diner, also a chef, fell in love with the tranquility of opportunities of Todos Santos. Jose, while keeping the favorite pastas and pizzas of Il Giardino, has added his touch as well his Basque specialties. He does magic with the abundance of or local fish, lightly cooked with surprising sauces. Always ask about the specialty of the day and never, never turn down dessert. In the fall, every two weeks, he and Carmen will again serve the five course tasting menus that put them on the map of where to eat in TS. - 145-0199

I can not keep her and need to find her a home. Please help. - Dan Binetti, danbinetti [ - a t - ] yahoo.com, 044-612-11-70298

<<<<- Have You Lost This Dog? - A beautiful Pointer has appeared on our street corner in the last week and is clearly lost. (Please see photo.) He is mature, wearing a pale blue "Coastal" collar with no ID on it. He may be purebred Pointer, or a Boxer cross. He's being fed and watered where he is but he's distressed and frightened on the street, and is clearly a lost or stolen/abandoned pet. He's currently hanging out - not going too far from the water supply - on the corner of Calle Insurgentes and Agua Dulce, in La Posada colonia in La Paz (behind the VW agency, towards the water). He's very friendly, doesn't look like he's been on the street long, and is in great condition. It would be fab to find his owners - I imagine someone is missing him very much. - Penny Cottee, pennycottee [ - a t - ] ymail.com, La Paz
