  1. DACA is still a temporary stop gap measure for poor younger Illegals here. They still have no status in the USA and no path to Citizenship because Obama couldn’t get the dreamers act passed in Congress... another Democratic hot mess..
  2. There must be less than 10 comments posted here each month. Surely it’s close to shut down?
  3. Mmmm quite a political rant... you’ve said your piece now I’ll say mine.....thank God the Democrats are not in power..
  4. I know that this isn't a political forum, but that's a really obtuse thing to say. If you don't like the President, you can always consider moving back to Orania
  5. As long as we don’t get a democratic President next year, things will be fine.
  6. Interesting. Let’s wait and see..
  7. Thanks SJ272 for clearing that up. I have read so many articles that pretty much scare you into believing all hell will break loose if you did not formally emigrate. The tax resident status test sorts that one out. Good stuff.
  8. All expats and SA citizens. The new SA tax laws for expats will become law in March. It has the potential to affect every South African who earns outside of the country to the tune of 45% above the 1 mill earnings threshold. If you officially emigrated or are a US citizen? No worries. Other wise make sure you are on the right side of this. https://m.fin24.com/Money/Tax/sa-expat-tax-law-how-to-avoid-sars-clamp-down-on-expat-income-20190120
  9. Thanks Malamute! Yes We will definitely do that.
  10. All this talk of getting citizenship is really exciting after so many years! Congrats everyone. It has to be said it is a journey that few successfully make and if you are one of the chosen few it is an electric experience. Our Ceremony is days away. I still cannot believe it. It has been just over 7 years since we entered. The N400 has taken just under a year to process which is sooner than the quoted thirteen and a half months. Passport time!
  11. I stopped filing after the second year too. The SARS website recommended this when I had no irp 5 to file. But this new ruling is a very curious state of affairs. I'm reading that anything over R mil will be taxable up to the SARS tax rate shortfall. I could kinda understand this if the money was being shipped back to SA but in a lot cases expats are just living overseas off of it. A bit of a overreach for SA Law IMO. But hey, what isn't over there?

    DV 2019

    Good Luck Nesbert, sincerely hope you are successful with this. As much as I disagree with the whole DV Visa thing, our lives have been transformed by moving to the US. I remember being in your position 6 years ago.. Right now It does appear to be a race against time. The US are gunning to have this all stopped, It looks like DACA will be used as bait to get Dems to agree to a deal on the Wall and shut down the DV Visa among a host of other stuff this year. If you are lucky, even if this gets done, it will only apply next year - 2020 intake.
  13. Lol... like the Van Jones nothing burger......
  14. Malamute, Disproportionate? How so? The US sported a white population of well over 70% between1982 and 2012. Of the 62 cases, 44 amounts to 70%. That's not disproportionate that's pretty much bang on. We all too readily seem to accept what we read in the Fake news these days of which CNN seem to be the biggest culprits. My point still stands that the DV visa will be targeted and that IMO the lottery is a stupid idea. Now, all of you, please stop with the racial blame game. There are no winners here.
  15. SJ272, Why you would answer my post with a racially charged response like that is beyond me..... There are plenty of mass shootings carried out in this Country by all types, if you care to open your eyes a bit..... I am surprised that administrators allow you to post crap like this on the website. You should be ashamed of yourself.
