In the United States, individual States tax residents and non-residents. Many States tax residents on worldwide income, but non-residents are generally taxed on income sourced in that State only.

The 10 years probably refers to the 10-year INA 212(a)(9)(A)(ii) ban for being deported from inside the US, which is already over. However, I believe he also has a lifetime INA 212(a)(2)(A)(i)(II) ban for a drug conviction, and he will need a waiver for this ban. At his fiance visa or immigrant visa interview, the officer will determine that he has a ban ...

The procedure is different depending on whether you are in the "border zone", or in the rest of Mexico. The "border zone" is the area within about 20km of the land borders, and the whole of Baja California (North and South), and it is an easier process there. Since you have a TIP (temporary import permit), you are probably not in a border zone. Rolly ...

This is an ugly subject for the US citizens given the taxation of the global income.

Long story short ...

Unless your local area is unusual, you're unlikely to get a renewal in the timescale you want. In this area, the renewal of a temporary visa (or change to permanent) has to be applied for during the 30 days before expiry (not before). Some areas it's even nearer to the expiry date. So during early June you could get the application in. How soon it starts ...

Mexico doesn't yet have "affordable" credit cards, by US standards. Every card I've seen has an annual fee (200 MXN/year is among the lowest), and very high interest rates (APR around 30%). If you need a card for local payments, and domestic online payments, all the banks issue debit cards. These are mostly Visa debit cards that work both locally and ...

You will want to set up a domicile in the state that has the tax laws you want.

Some TVs may be dual voltage but many are not. A dual voltage power supply is more expensive and few TVs are moved between countries. Check carefully before you buy a set. However, also consider that TVs are not universal global products. A TV that you buy in one country is not necessarily the same as the TV in another for reasons other than voltage. The ...

As you're aware, citizens and residents of the US (and many other countries) may enter Mexico without a visa for periods of less than 180 days.

The “Temporary Resident Student Visa” (Residente Temporal Estudiante) is issued to those who ...

As we are now living in Mexico, I thought I would answer to outline what ended up happening with this.

She made it quite clear that we did not have work permits, and ...

I have lived and done business in Panama for 12 years. There are hundreds of thousands of retirees in a tiny country of only 3 million people. Foreigners are considered as "superior" and are generally well respected by the authorities. In Panama, there are many networking opportunities with thousands of expats participating. One such network is ...

The "intent to return" is state specific. Some states are tough on this. Without evidence you have established a residence elsewhere in the USA before you moved overseas some states won't give up their claim to such taxes. People, including a large number of active duty military establish (or attempt to establish) a domicile in a state without state ...

First, some theory. Any foreigner can get a credit card & a credit rating in Mexico as long as you have FM2 or FM3, which are similar to resident cards, and the actual resident cards (which are new). You also need some way to prove your income (payroll slips, tax reports, or debit/checking card deposits for 3 months). There are a lot of affordable ...

Some banks here, like Banamex or Bancomer, have credit cards specifically for people who never had a card before. They calculate your credit line based on whatever income you have received on a savings account over the last 3 months. Your credit line will most likely be pretty low, but I personally find it better, no risk of falling into unpayable debt. Do ...

As an apology for the previous answer, in my defence I'll just note there is a difference between processing of visa-exempt and visa-required entries that always causes me cognitive dissonance. If you are visa-exempt and get an I-797 extending your status, the CBP officer you see on reentry looks at your I-797 and allows you entry based on that; the I-797 ...

According to the CDC, import requirements for pet cats are pretty relaxed. However, additional requirements may apply based on the destination state, county, or city.

I was waiting to see if anyone with actual facts to offer would answer this, but since not I'll offer an opinion that may be a little light on facts. As in the US, in Mexico vehicle registration and driver licensing is the responsibility of the individual Mexican states and requirements may vary from state to state (Baja has two, Sur and norte). That said, I ...

Will your resident status be as tourists, temporary residents, or permanent residents? And, where do you plan to be while in Mexico?

If you're going ...

As suggested in a comment by audionuma, the Mexican Embassy in London does indeed have information about this.

The relevant items are: ¿Cómo registrarse? (how to register) ...

There are 'expediters' in MX who can assist you with registration of the car in other US states, including providing you with a mailing address in that state with notice forwarding to your address in MX. Ask around the expat community.
