Mr. Brohl, CPA,
James Brohl, C.P.A., will speak to us about TAXES, and especially FATCA.
Be aware of what has changed in the tax laws this year before filing your taxes. Many new requirements are in effect concerning reporting of assets, especially for expats. And everyone is looking for clarity on the laws so we don’t pay more than we are required.
James Brohl is a C.P.A. from the State of Michigan and earned his M.B.A. from Michigan State University. He is a tax professional with over 10 years experience in International Tax matters working in Costa Rica. He has in-depth knowledge of both U.S. Corporate and Individual tax returns.

Theircushion between what the hotel charges them and what they charge for attendance is getting very thin. They used to order bocas for 3-5 extra people for meetings, but if they did that now they would lose money, so they order only for those who made their reservation, and then order extra on the day of the meeting. However, the hotel can charge them 20% extra if they order bocas on the day of the meeting, so they need to avoid that.Costa Rica Democrats Abroad - Costa RicaVicki Skinner
