    Finally got a job!

    Well first off "Thank You!" to all the good folks here that put me in their thoughts and prayers.

    Haven't worked since July. I start 5 Jan. I will have to travel overseas for the job, but pay is really good and tax free up to $82,000.

    Bad news is that I'll have to go sans family for 1 year.

    At least I'll be able to provide roof, clothing and food for them.

    Thank you again.
    Merry Christmas!
    Happy Chanukah!
    Merry Yule!

    And Blessings upon all!!

    Congrats, brother. I'm sure you will/have, but there are stipulations regarding your tax exemptions for working overseas that you need to keep track of. Be safe wherever it is you're heading!

    IF you work over 6 mo's overseas, you may not have to pay US taxes, but be careful that you don't get nailed for taxes in other countries that can be worse.

    Congrats on the job.

    Congratulations. Being away from family is rough, but you'll have peace of mind now, at least.

    Congrats on the job.

    As long as your out of the country for 335 days in the year that your overseas, then the income in exempt up to 82,000. It is also based on the days in the year. So since your going the early part of Jan, just don't come back to the states more than 30 days from Jan 5, 2010 to Jan 4, 2011.

    Had a client this year that due to illness was forced to come back to the states, he didn't like it much when he had a bill to the US Treasury for about 8K.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
