We do have water here, and even flour, and we brush our teeth too. More FRESH veggies as most are grown here!

Posted a little infobit in your linked post.

BTW, how's he liking it out here? Having fun yet? He sure did move out here at a good time. Nice weather, sunshine, and starting to warm up! If you don't have an address to deliver it to by the time it gets out here, you're more than welcome to use mine. Got a spare parking spot in Hollywood right now.

Is it pretty safe walking around Silver Lake in the dark with $700 cash in your pocket waiting for your car to be delivered?

So, now things are rolling. Jr got an internship and soon afterward, it turned into a real job. So Now, things are different. Officially, he , you can say, is not a student anymore....but an employee in Calif. Now, he has to register his alfa, right? Has 20 days to do it?

Thanks!

As a student, or member of the US Military, he wouldn't need to register; he even can pay his taxes as a Non-Resident. However, anything he makes, part-time or otherwise, while in California is taxable income; you need a tax advisor if he has capital gains or dividend income..... Even golfers that live in Florida pay California income tax on their winnings for tournaments that are held in California.

But if he has a full time job, he's a resident, and needs a Cal drivers license and auto registration, insurance (must have proof of insurance with a California address to register a car), etc.

Congratulations and welcome to the sunny state.

Wouldn't worry about it too much. Do it when he can. Never heard it was illegal to make money in California if you weren't a resident, its possible though. Plenty of people not residents, making money here. Pay the state taxes on money earned here and it shouldn't be a problem. There are people who are Bi-coastal, working here and other states, full time or otherwise. If he wants to stay in California as his permanent residence, he will need to get it done eventually, but the few days the state says you have to do it in is ridiculous. The state won't go out of the way to hunt him down and deport him.
