Does that tax exclusion ONLY apply to income earned outside the US? For example, I am able to do short term contracting work (4-6 weeks apiece) IN the US. Would this income be free from tax if I spent over 80% of my time in CR?
Here’s a suggestion:
Say “Oh yeah honey it’s just like Hawaii”. Then get on with your plans. 🙂
Seriously, there is good diving on the Pacific side. Why not plan a Dive trip?

I was referring to the post about Bob’s project in Bejuco and Esterillo. I’m coming down soon and would like to stop in and talk with him.
The last few times I went to CR I used my Visa credit card’s CDW Collission Damage Waiver. I made 3 seperate calls, one to the car rental agency (Europecar) and two to the rewards/benefits deptartment of my Credit Card. All 3 concurred that the CDW insurance provided by my credit card was acceptable coverage equivilent to the coverage that was normally charged by the rental agency, except that the Visa coverage, if I rememeber correctly, had NO deductable. I did not read any stipulations about having an equivilent coverage on my personal car, although since it was brought up I would double check. I did ask those type of questions though and even had Visa fax me a letter outlineing the coverage so I could present it to the Rental agency. Europcar had no problem with it what-so-ever. You credit card should have a website that outline “member benefits” and typically explains this coverage.
The only stipulation was that the car had to rented with my Visa card and remain on “Primary Roads” and I was the only person authorized to drive it. Visa provided a driving map that outline which roads were appropriate. They are all the paved roads and the “main” dirt roads.
PS: Kieth, can you email me about an earlier post you made?

Thanks for all the info.
Keith, I am planning a “fact finding” trip along with a business partner of mine. He is coming around Thanksgiving, and I will be down in December. If you’re up for it I’d love to stop by for lunch, surfing or whatever. We have some ambitious plans and need local knowledge.
Anyway, email me if you’d like: email@example.com
