I'm sure I'm not the first
I'm sure I'm not the first person to be in my current situation, so I'm hoping someone on the boards can help me out...I've searched high and low and can't find answers to these questions!I'm an American and my husband is Italian. He lives in Italy and I live in the States, but I'm moving to Italy in January.I work for an American company and will continue to do so from Italy. My company does not have an Italian office (that is to say, I won't be going to an office in Italy everyday--don't know if this matters!). I will continue to receive my salary in US dollars to my American bank account.I plan to go to the questura as soon as possible after arrival to get the ball rolling for my permesso di soggiorno!Questions:1. Do I have to take Italian residency? What are the pros and cons to this? Is it smarter to maintain American (or dual?) residency for some reason (ie. taxes)?2. How will healthcare work for me over there?3. Do I have to pay Italian taxes? Do I just continue to file American taxes from over there?4. Can I open a bank account? If I wire transfer money a few times a year from my American account to my husband's Italian account (or to my Italian account, if I open one) will he/I have to pay Italian taxes on that (ie. will that appear suspect/appear to be income, even though it's not)?5. Any insight into the permesso di soggiorno process would also be most welcome!6. Are there pros/cons to getting Italian citizenship?I just want to do what's most financially saavy without breaking the law!Thanks so much!
