Puerto Rico Act 22 Signed Decree Received Today!

Got my signed Act 22 Decree today.

Here’s a breakdown of dates:

February 12, 2016 – File Date
April 20, 2016 – Acceptance Letter Dated (received digital version May 16, 2016)
April 27, 2016 – Signed Decree Date (received May 16, 2016)
April 28, 2016 – Notification of Signed Decree requiring $5,000 Payment
April 29, 2016 – Priority shipped check
May 6, 2016 РCheck delivered to BDO (thanks M̩ndez Giovanni!)
May 16, 2016 – Signed Decree Received
May 16, 2016 – Mailed out Unconditional Acceptance and $50 Fee

2.5 months from application file date to acceptance. Considering 100% tax free for interest and dividends up to December 31, 2035, I’m satisfied!

And I still have my US Citizenship. This still feels “too good to be true.”

Act 20 still pending.

Once I finish 2016 tax returns, perhaps it’ll feel more real.
