We encourage all foreigners who might have a question on immigration issues to come out and talk to us. Our purpose is to teach foreigners everything there is to know about immigration: the benefit of having a visa, the differences in visas, how to get one, which one is right for you, your rights & obligations, etc. And, if anyone would like to apply for or renew a visa right there, after the talk, we will have a laptop and printer ready to fill-out forms and letters to bring back to La Paz, same with a camera to take the immigration accepted pictures so you do not need to go out of town for the pictures. So, come on out to the house on the corner of Ocampo St. and Rangel (in-front of Cable Magico) this Saturday at 10 a.m. We look forward to seeing you there. It will help to have an idea of the number of people coming, so please email me to let me know you will attend and/or to answer any questions you might have. Thanks. - Francisco Gonzalez Nolasco, info [- at -] southernbajalegalservices.com, www.southernbajalegalservices.com/, 612-158-5776, La Paz

Warning To All Overseas Americans - From American Citizens Abroad, the latest requirements coming this year from the IRS. A new IRS filing requirement resulting from FATCA legislation begins with fiscal year 2011 (the tax forms required to be filed on April 15th 2012). US citizens and green card holders living outside the United States will have to a file a new Form 8938 to list all their personal foreign financial assets along with their 1040 . This form must be filed in addition to the FBAR form which is sent separately to the Treasury Department.

The reporting requirements of Form 8938 are more comprehensive and more complicated than those for the FBAR. However, 8938 reporting is required only on personally owned assets; it does not include any foreign accounts over which you had only signatory authority but no financial interest, contrary to the requirements for the FBAR. The 8938 reporting threshold of foreign assets depends on whether you are a bona fide overseas resident or a US resident and whether you file “married filing jointly” or otherwise. Draft versions of Form 8938 and the instructions are available as of November 2011. ACA strongly recommends that you read the draft instructions and form carefully to understand the scope of your reporting requirements and to consult with a professional tax preparer or tax advisor on any questions you may have.

The link to the instructions is: www.irs.gov/pub/irs-dft/i8938--dft.pdf. The link to the form is: www.irs.gov/pub/irs-dft/f8938--dft.pdf

The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), passed into law in March 2010, is the law that requires the new filing of Form 8938. FATCA also requires all foreign financial institutions, including banks, brokers, pension funds, insurance companies, hedge funds, mutual funds, trusts, to report to the IRS holdings of their clients who are US persons. This will come into force on January 1, 2014 and will allow the IRS to cross-check between reports of foreign financial institutions and individual filings of Form 8938.

If FATCA is implemented as planned, it could seriously harm the US economy due to the inevitable disinvestment by foreigners out of US assets and it would create a huge potential systemic risk for the international financial system. FATCA is particularly prejudicial to Americans residing overseas as it is shutting off access to international banks and investment opportunities and creates the new reporting requirement of Form 8938. For all these reasons, ACA has launched a worldwide campaign calling for the rapid repeal of FATCA. You will find more information on this ACA website . We need your support – volunteer your time and donations to strengthen the campaign.

Pet Corner (Lost and Found pet articles will run for two weeks)

Let us know if you find or place your pet so we can remove your ad -

Found Puppy - I found a small, tan, female puppy with a green collar Saturday afternoon in front of Caffe Todos Santos. She seems to be 2-4 months old perhaps, very clean, and very healthy. I assumed her owner was close by but nobody knew anything about her. We later believed she may have gone missing the night prior because our dogs were barking at a small animal that night. She's being taken care of at the Old Charles Stewart home (Obregon & Centenario, next to Caffe Todos Santos) if the owner happens to find this ad. - Janine Wall, coneyislandgreen [- at -] yahoo.com, 612-152-4499, Todos Santos

Sweetheart Cat Needs Home - Lovable, affectionate, friendly and well mannered. This "street cat" has been spayed, is young but not too, probably around a year old. She's been given flea treatment, fed well for a few weeks and in good shape now. But we are leaving for the states at the end of November and she needs to find a permanent home. - Colleen Ray, 805-712-1664, Todos Santos
