“I am Cuban and a resident of the United States. I am 66 years old and receive a pension of $1,400. I have two children in Cuba who have never wanted to leave the country and I would like to live out my old age with them. So I am thinking seriously, in light of the new changes in migration law, of beginning to take the necessary steps to return to my loved ones. My question is the following: Would I have to pay tax on my pension? If so, which I view as natural and I am in agreement, what would the procedure be and what would be the percentage?”
– a question signed by Edel Gonzalez presented to Cuban tax authorities, who answered questions about the new tax law in an on-line forum and in the comments section of this article in Juventud Rebelde.
