San Ramón group plans seminar on Costa Rican, U.S. laws

The Community Action Alliance in San Ramón is hosting a presentation by a lawyer and an accounting specialist to discuss topics that are of concern to expats.

The lawyer is Roger Peterson, author of “The Legal Guide to Costa Rica.” The accounting specialist is Randall Zamora.

Among other topics, the seminar is expected to address the new tax on corporations, the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, the new Costa Rican license plates and the use of immigration identity cards to make bank transfer.

The seminar is Friday at 10 a.m. in the upstairs conference room at the COOPENAE offices in San Ramón. Members of the organization can attend for free.

Non-members are asked to pay 2,000 colons, about $4. Reservations are requested at or 8333-8750.
