    Default Curious about stats on expats

    Can anyone tell me what percentage of expatriates live in the DR all year round? I assume these have no other home in another country. Also, I am assuming that the vast majority of expats live on the North Coast and a few in Santo Domingo. Thanks in advance.

    Good question mrgood! but I'm not sure that anyone would have the stats. Given that many ex-pats even seem reluctant to tell their own embassy that they live here!

    100% of me lives here all the time in LT apart from up to 4 weeks holiday in UK each year.

    I live here full time also. I like to get away as often as possible but that's just because I have family in the UK and I have the NYC bug at the moment but I have no other home than in the DR

    You'd probably have to go (donor) country by country to get accurate stat's.

    The Internal Revenue Service knows exactly how many American expatraies are out there.

    Not if you use a US address for mail and IRS correspondence.

    Full time in the DR for the past 3.5 years. Visited UK once before in Autumn 2007 and had no choice but to spend 9 weeks back in the UK last year. My other half was there for 10 months being diagnosed and treated for cancer. Yes, we live North Coast but out of tourist areas - our choice!

    Keep thinking that. My Dad came home from 12 years expatriate (FDNY, Ret.) to his official N.Y. address and got hit with a bill for back taxes which he didn't owe. They froze our joint personal and business accounts and I supported him for a year and a half before the lawyers got them sorted out.

    At the end of the day it turned out that he hadn't owed them a dime. They didn't even offer an apology. I ate the legal fees and the interest on the frozen accounts. They weren't deductible.
