residence issue


Hi all, our new insurance plan requires that we have an "address" in California on record so that we can use California doctors.

Does anyone know of a mail service or other service that would work for us?

Thanks in advance and time is of the essence ... we have to the end of the month to do this or we lose our insurance.

Mail services, such as Postal Annex, are street addresses. That works for me with AAA. Not that it should matter, but don't use the PMB. Instead, use apt or the #-sign.

Mom's is an option as is Les's sons but we are looking for other options.

Thanks Dennis, sounds OK.

using postal annex addresses for stuff like this could cancel your insurance...

its "skirting" the rules...I know this for a fact...don't let others guide you the wrong way

use "mom's" address

Blanca, I agree with Bob. You apparently are supposed to be a resident of California for this insurance. Be careful on advice.

Many people want to be californians, to enjoy the benefits of the greatest state in the nation,... but they dont want to pay taxes that help make the golden state so golden

Be careful of claiming residency but not filing california tax return. The golden state tax man chases civic scoflaws.

I have a friend that got a Mail service in San Diego. That all he did so he could run up to get mail. he is living full time in Mexico, that was all he did. About 18 moths later he got a letter form California asking for taxes as he was a residency do to mail service address. He is still getting letters from them even after getting a lawyer.

SO

Did he have income in Calif? I mean, just because you get your mail there doesn't mean you owe taxes.

NO, never lived there, or work there. only driven through, shopped and picked up mail. Try telling that to Calif.

I moved my home and business out of California to Oregon twenty five years ago and was harassed continuously for taxes on income not earned there for at least five years. I finally told them in very graphic terms in writing where to go. They never had any justification from the beginning and finally went away. They rely on operating by intimidation as the 800 lb Gorilla and it must work for them in most cases.

Yup, California Franchise Tax Board will come after you even if you have a mail drop address only. Been dealing with them for 5 years now with them claiming that I earn income in California. Send their form back with a copy of my Nevada DL and my Mexican Residente Permamente card. They respond with a "OK, you are cleared for this year"........Think I need LancairDriver to write a letter for me

I use a TX mailing address and a damn good CPA.

I never have an issue.

I am declared, tax-wise, as not living in the USA.
