My wife wants to dog sit. She, as I, is a permanent resident. I want to do things right/legal.

So I call an attorney. Attorney says I/my wife can't just fill out forms for registering and paying state/federal taxes. We must hire an accountant at a hefty cost.

Bob? (or anyone else), is this true? My wife will never make the money to cover accountant costs.

Any alternatives.

Nope, Spencer has told me lots of times I could enter all my own information online (every month) and pay my own taxes (every two months).

Did he just happen to have a brother who was an accountant....lol?

BTW.....everything to register with the tax authorities is done online. You don't fill out forms......

BBO,

I would send you a PM, but my last two never seemed to get to you.

I would like to buy you lunch/beer/tea, whatever when you can (and if you're willing).

I have wanted to ask you about your B&B; not that I would do one, but I thought about it 15 years ago, and maybe you ca give me some website URLs to do the tax papers.

Thanks.

I'm willing to bet you are the only wanna be pet sitter in the area that has even given a thought to doing it legally. Pet sit, enjoy the few pesos that MIGHT bring, and forget the paperwork, attorneys, and accountants.

I'm sure some of my fans here would love me to do that. Also, a website is a red flag for the gestapo.

It isn't going live for acceptance yet, but it does show up.

This will be it.

My wife gives lots of extras. They can watch TV w.us; sleep on the bed; etc.

Didn't your previous partner (itzi) sell/knit dog clothes, tires wrapped in rope ... so this taxes thing is all new to you.

We set people up in the tax system, give them a password and I have even prepared a filing manual in English with screenshots.

And what would it cost me for the services?

Why are you attempting to make your life so difficult, as well as expensive? Instead of paying an attorney and accountant for something you absolutely DO NOT need, pay your fracc dues so you're not on the list of morosos! Just an idea. Rolling Eyes

Oh yes, I am going to do the tax papers myself; actually my wife will do it as her first language is Spanish, I just wanted to know what Spencer would charge me. Thanks for the information Spencer.

I was not on the morosos until I hand wrote my name on the bottom of the  list.

I have told the fracc several times, I will be the first in line to pay my back dues when, as I have asked for the last 2-3 years, the fracc takes some affirmative action to either collect from us morosos or change the By Laws to include interest on past due dues. The current and past BODs have refused to address the issue, so until they do, I'll let the $$ sit and correct6%  interest at MultiVa.

At the last AGM, why didn't the BOD put forward something to charge interest on past due amounts? It's perfectly legal.

This is why I don’t live in a condominio or fracc. Rolling Eyes

When I lived in Vista del Lago, I had a 4,200 sq.ft. hours, three stories, swimming pool. view of the country club, gold course, lake, etc.

I quickly found it was run by the Good-old boys", who as an aside, for some reason, disliked Canadians.

As a business person, I saw incredible incompetence and inefficiency. I saw repairs being done and redone, and redone because it was being done wrong (you don't lay rebar directly on the ground; you don't patch a water tank on the outside), and when I talked about it, I was ignores.

I also don't work well with humans; I do great with dogs.

A fracc is a business and should be run like one. You don't put a retired dentist in charge of making decisions on maintenance, etc.

I probably said this before, but if not ----

When my little Privada needed a street light, I just put it in myself and hooked it to my house power. Didn't bother to ask the BOD. Same when I ordered rock for the otherwise mud "street" going to the back houses where I live.

In my next life, no Condo, Franc, BOD.
