Summary: if you live in PR > 153 days/year , start a business in PR, and donate $5k to a PR charity, then you receive zero % capital gains on that investment.

Worth it?

You are exempt from federal taxes? That is hard to believe-the stupid federal govt taxes you even if you live in another country?

I'm no expert. Just reading the article. Is the zero % capital gains claim inaccurate?

Puerto Rico has all the advantages of a country, with all of the bills paid by the USA.

They get their own flag at the Olympics, don't have to pay federal income tax in Puerto Rican income, instantly eligible for Federal welfare programs in and out of Puerto Rico. But elect their own incredibly corrupt officials, insist to everybody they aren't American, kick out all the USN Navy Bases then demand economic aid after the economy crumbles in the towns that were near it, and celebrate Maduro and Castro.

Until a disaster strikes, then they rediscover they're Americans as if by magic, what a coincidence.




The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
