  1. Back to the original post Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - On July 4, 2014, the Secretary of Hacienda and Public Credit, the Mexican version of the IRS or Revenue Canada, issued a miscellaneous fiscal resolution that as of September 1, 2014 will affect all buyer and sellers of real estate in Mexico, regardless of their nationality. Without getting into all of the details of the whys and wherefores of these new rules, basically the tax authority has made the determination that in order for the costs involved in real estate transaction that is taking place be tax-deductible in the future for the party that is purchasing the real estate, the purchaser must provide, at closing, proof of a CURP (Clave Unica de Registro de Población, similar to a Social Security Number of Social Insurance Number) and a RFC (Registro Federal de Contribuyentes or Taxpayer ID Number). Furthermore, since it is the notary public that will issue the tax-deductible electronic receipt (CFDI or Comprobante Fiscal Digital a través de Internet), the current criteria of the local notaries here so far is to insist on having both buyer AND seller show proof of the CURP and RFC in order to fully complete the receipt or CFDI. http://www.banderasnews.com/1408/re-tropicasa-mexico-real-estate-resolution.htm Guess it's getting more complicated. I did a lot of RE transactions here. Never had an RFC. Never kept a house five years. Never paid any Capital Gains. Did most transactions on an FM3. Guess those days are over too.
  2. Yes you do. It's called a CURP. You can get it at City Hall in Chapala. Walk through the lobby, out through the terrace and back as far as you can go, It's free, take your passport and immigration card.
  3. Actually I wasn't holding out any hope for you Blondiegal. Just hoping somebody that reads it, will get it. I posted the link Gringal, which has a great video from The Health Ranger and many links to other info.
  4. http://www.bewellbuzz.com/general/10-reasons-flu-shots-dangerous-flu/ 1.) There is a total lack of real evidence that young children even benefit from flu shots. A systematic review of 51 studies involving 260,000 children age 6 to 23 months found no evidence that the flu vaccine is any more effective than a placebo. Also the shots are only able to protect against certain strains of the virus, which means that if you come into contact with a different strain of virus you will still get the flu. 2.) Medical journals have published thousands of articles revealing that injecting vaccines can actually lead to serious health problems including harmful immunological responses and a host of other infections. This further increases the body’s susceptibility to the diseases that the vaccine was supposed to protect against. 3.) Ever noticed how vaccinated children within days or few weeks develop runny noses, pneumonia, ear infections and bronchiolitis? The reason is the flu virus introduced in their bodies which creates these symptoms. It also indicates immuno-suppression i.e. lowering of the immunity. The flu vaccines actually do not immunize but sensitize the body against the virus. 4.) Its a known fact that Flu vaccines contain strains of the flu virus along with other ingredients. Now think about the impact such a vaccine can have over someone with a suppressed immune system? If you have a disease that is already lowering your body’s ability to fight a virus, taking the flu shot will put your body in danger of getting the full effects of the flu and make you more susceptible to pneumonia and other contagious diseases. 5.) The Flu vaccines contain mercury, a heavy metal known to be hazardous for human health. The amount of mercury contained in a multi-dose flu shot is much higher than the maximum allowable daily exposure limit. Mercury toxicity can cause memory loss, depression, ADD, oral health problems, digestive imbalances, respiratory problems, cardiovascular diseases and many more such serious health ailments. And what about the elderly? Can the flu vaccine help them? 6.) There is mounting evidence that flu shots can cause Alzheimer’s disease. One report shows that people who received the flu vaccine each year for 3 to 5 years had a 10-fold greater chance of developing Alzheimer’s disease than people who did not have any flu shots. Also with age the immune system weakens, thus lowering your ability to fight off infections. Introducing the flu virus in the bodies of elderly could have dangerous consequences. Can we trust the authorities who are promoting the wide-spread use of flu vaccines? 7.) The Center for Disease Control appoints a 15-member Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). This committee is responsible for deciding who should be vaccinated each year. Almost all the ACIP have a financial interest in immunizations. It’s all about the money and may have very little to do with your health and well being. The very people pushing these vaccines stand to make billions of dollars. This itself creates a doubt on how effective these flu vaccines really are? 8.) Research shows that over-use of the flu-vaccine and drugs like Tamiflu and Relenza can actually alter flu viruses and cause them to mutate into a more deadly strain. Couple this with drug resistant strains and you have virtually no benefits with much risk. 9.) There is enough evidence that shows that the ingredients present in the flu vaccinations can actually cause serious neurological disorders. In the 1976 swine flu outbreak, many who got the flu shots developed permanent nerve damage. Flu vaccines can contain many harmful materials including detergent, mercury, formaldehyde, and strains of live flu virus. Is this what you want to put in YOUR body? 10.) Trying to guess what strain to vaccinate against each season has proved to be no more effective than a guessing game. This has been very true in recent years with the H1N1 strain. Moreover getting multi-shots will only prove more dangerous as different strains of viruses and harmful ingredients are introduced into your body. Flu shots are indeed more dangerous than you could think, and it is best to rely on natural ways to protect against the flu rather than getting yourself vaccinated. Isn’t it interesting that the main stream public health officials never promote the various proven ways to avoid the flu other than through vaccination? How about spending some of the billions of advertising dollars teaching us natural ways to boost our immune systems and avoid the flu without harmful and sometimes deadly vaccinations.
  5. Back to the OP's question. The sewer line project is dead (for now). The assessment per household was too much for most families. Then there was the problem of hook-up. Many, maybe most, homes have the septic tanks in the rear of the house and the house goes from wall to wall. No way to bring the line to the front of the house out to the street. Most of the homes would have to be torn down to re-plumb for a sewer line. Fortunately, the powers that be had the foresight to kill a bad idea.
  6. You must have your information wrong. I've been bringing in vitamins, supplements and herbs for years. They always go through customs. I've even had bottles opened by customs but they always get here. Large Corporations like Iherb certainly know the laws and wouldn't advertise shipping to Mexico if it was illegal.
  7. Do they really ship free to Mexico? What was the average time between putting in your order and receiving it? What address did you have to give? (PO Texas box? or ????) Their international shipping has a limit of $80 and a max of 4lbs per order. The shipping charge per order is $4 but they credit back a minimum of 5% per order and often more. Which makes shipping free. There's no limit to the amount of orders. I usually receive the order in 2 to 3 weeks. A couple times I got charged a customs fee, the most was 38 pesos, usually no customs fees. My advice would be to never use the Mailboxes type places unless you absolutely have to have something from a company that won't ship to Mexico. The Postal service here in Mexico has never failed to deliver a package I ordered directly to my house.
  8. I've found the health food stores here to be very overpriced and low quality. You can buy almost anything you need from http://iherb.com for 30% to 50% off retail, free shipping, and no customs fees (actually I paid 38 pesos a couple of times). In hundreds of orders, I've never not gotten what I ordered. They also have food, herbs, and supplements. Limits of $80 and 4 lbs but so what, place as many orders as you want. Sample: Check it out, they have everything.
