I really appreciate the assistance, although not the initial scolding, if I'm honest. I'm pretty proud of myself for moving to another country on my own and figuring it all out thus far. I think with continued help I will be OK with this as well, so thanks for the input. I know I have until June 15t...

Dual Citizen Living in UK -- Taxes question

Hi all, I'm American and had my Italian citizenship recognized this past summer and have since moved to London with the right to work and live as an EU citizen. As the year is coming to a close I am beginning to think about taxes and the fact that I yet have some learning to do about how this works ...

it's helpful if you also bring them a copy of your US passport and driver's license. they will keep a copy. obviously they can make copies for you there, but they'll like it if the copies are all ready for you to just hand them.

NYC requires translations now, but don't seem to require any form of certification.

jeff, you'll need to prove your residence to the consulate (copy of your driver's license). i wouldn't recommend trying to trick the government, even if it *is* the highly corrupt italian one. :) it could well come back to bite you later on!! not worth it!

jeff! i can say on behalf of us all all that it is very good you asked this question. NOOOOOO you unfortunately cannot stroll in to the NYC consulate. (others you can but definitely not NY!) you need to make an appointment via their website and last we heard they were scheduling them about a year ou...

are you pressed for time in any way? if so, then you might do both at once (hire this site and write to the consulate yourself). if you are not in any kind of rush then i would definitely recommend writing yourself first, as that is FREE. this is a super helpful form letter generation which translat...

since this was my thread to begin with, i won't apologize for its now-tangential nature but will instead continue it .... :) clarifying question then - if you are traveling within the EU, but not necessarily to italy, do you need the bollos renewed yearly? i plan to move to the EU but at this point,...

mine was really speedy too, comparatively. tony gave me the impression that it has a lot to do with how straightforward your case is or is not, also. i was lucky that mine was really simple and clear, with no questions or anything like that.

best of luck!

i actually had extra pics from when i got my US passport renewed last year. there's that little booth in the waiting room there though. i think on their website it said they cost $5 for 4? pretty cheap. i did mine at CVS for $7 for 4 i think. and yes, the passport was $123.10 as of the exchange rate...
