Dear Bird Talk,

I understand that the eight-month option is before congress again, but I was told by someone that it will only apply to immigration and not to IRS. IRS will still restrict us to 183 days. Does not seem to make sense. Do you have any comment on that?

Response:
Ed.: Do not listen to some of these crazy negative rumours out there. Often, they are spread by insurance competitors trying to undermine CSA. CSA already has verbal approval from both INS and the IRS that taxes will not be collected from people with the Snowbird Visa. The IRS also indicated that they would simply amend the Form 8840 to “resolve” the problem.
