I have called them 3 times already. The first time - I went thru connecting to 5 people who never answered their phone and then got someone who couldn't speak english.
The second time I tried to call to set up an appointment - the people who were supposed to know this stuff - again no answer for 3 people then I finally
gave up when the operator transferred me to someone else who picked up the
phone and must have just put the reciever down - heard a conversation and then about 4 minutes later they hung up - operator tried again - phone was busy.
The third time - even had a name - again person not there - gave my number and name - they have not called back.
From what I have heard from other US retirees - they are not reconsidering staying in Aruba. With the retirement accounts declining 50% plus
and getting taxed in the US for say 28% - they can't afford any more
taxation on top of that.
Thanks for the information. We are seeing one of them today.
The thing about the AZV tax - is when you move here - you have
to have proof of outside insurance. We have had international
insurance which might not exempt us from the tax....
