    I have read post on this forum for over two years and thought I should finally join now that I can contribute something to the conversation.

    even if you cannot contribute....pop on and say hello

    keep us abreast of your "adventures"...the good, bad, ugly of the move to aruba.
    i bet it is not easy.
    but on the otherhand, it is certainly something to look forward to.

    my husband and i retired and moved from waltham, ma to florida with a brief stay in maine in between.
    heading to fla was the best decision!

    unless we win the lottery, we'd never be able to afford aruba with our pensions. social security not for another while yet!

    income tax in Aruba

    Does anyone have any information on income tax for residents? I read somewhere that you are taxed on world income in Aruba so if your income or pension comes from Canada or the US, you would be double taxed.

    You will be taxed but it depends on your income how much it will be. If you are making less than $100,000 US it's around $2,200.. Don't forget you are allowed to show losses like in your home country.Deductions and right offs..

    Ps: thank You Lisa

    How nice... The pension I get here in Quebec because of a serious car accident that caused me to have a severe head trauma is not taxable but once I move to Aruba, I will have to pay taxes on them. I never though about that one At least now I now that it wonn't cost me a whole lot.

    Thanks Pensionado

    someone working and the other not??!

    I have the same sort of question. I may be offered a job in aruba and obtain a work permit, but how would my husband be able to join me?? We are both residence of the UK. is there any way he can stay on the island with my for more than 190 days per year.. ??

    i may be able to support us both with my job, but i do not want to be apart from him.
