    Inaugural tax talk

    When do children need to start filing? And do they have to file the FBAR? Do I have to file taxes if I have no income? What if I’m self-employed? These questions and many more were part of a spirited and wide-ranging discussion at our inaugural tax talk on June 13th. Daniela Räkers, a Rheine based German accountant and licensed American CPA, sought to calm nerves about this very complicated and confusing topic. The discussion was both enlightening and at times baffling as we waded through abbreviations and terminology such as FBAR and Foreign Earned Income Exclusion, but in the end participants agreed that it was an evening well spent. Be on the lookout for another tax talk next year!

    Münster Christopher Street Day (CSD)

    According to Wikipedia, Christopher Street Day (CSD) “is an annual European LGBT celebration and demonstration held in various cities across Europe for the rights of LGBT people, and against discrimination and exclusion. It is Germany's counterpart to Gay Pride or Pride Parades.” That sounds about right. This year will mark the first time that our chapter will be actively taking part in Münster’s festivities.

    11:30 – Equality Demo

    Join DA members as we demonstrate through the street of Münster with hundreds of others in support of equality. We will provide signs. All you need to do is tell us you are coming (see below).

    13:00 – 19:00 – DA Information Stand at the Hafenfest

    If you are interested in helping out with this effort, please sign up, and we will provide you with detailed information.
