    IMO, the key phrase there is "reportable accounts". We're careful to keep our DR account under 10K. We do still report that we have the account [on our tax return]. If it goes over 10K, we have to...

    As you know, we live in the campo. The people there all call me Dona or Señora and use Ud. I’m a very informal person, and I struggle to remind myself to use Ud. I spend a lot of time with extended...
