Hi, Everyone!

Anyone have any information about this issue?

I'm a USVI resident. I married a New Yorker last year. If we decide to file a joint tax return, how will that work. Can we both file in VI?

BTW, I just got a newsletter from STX and I ache to return soon. Winter in Europe has been a bear. Brrrrrrrr!

I don't know the answer, but: In 2011, were you a resident of USVI for 183 days or more? I think that's the requirement for filing as a resident of USVI in any given tax year.

If you didn't earn your money in the USVI and earned it overseas there is an automatic exemption, I believe up to $83,000.PA. You say that you are a resident of the USVI where would that be if you don't live or maintain a residence in the territory. What is the address on your passport. Get yourself a good international CPA.

Edward, disregard the tax information I sent by private message.

Just left VI Bureau of Revenue, and I was told you have to return to St Croix with your new wife for a minimum 10 days, within 60 days for tax purposes. Simply put, you have to be personally here to file ---otherwise the VI government will send several VI senators to Georgia to apprehend you and return you to St Croix.

Just kidding, your friends are trying any tactic to get you to come back----damn that cold weather in Georgia, we hoped that would broken you by now.
