    I thought before I post a new thread about the New York state property tax system.
    Let me first introduce myself.

    My name is Floris. I live in the small country that's called Holland or the Netherlands (not Amsterdam)
    I'm a 22 year old tax law student at the university of Leiden.
    What is the reasen why a dutch student wants to discuss the New York state tax system? The answer is a combination of my early visit to the United States in 2008, my research paper and the fact that there is something in that tax system that I can't see to understand.

    I hope people will help me to get me to understand that part so I write a paper which is true.

    Luckily tax isn't my only interest in the USA,
    I find your struggle with public healthcare, debts, political battles quite fascinating.
    And I hope the New York Ranger reach the NHL finals.

    Bye Floris.

    Hi! Enjoy your stay!

    Do you hope to find something about the US tax code by using this site? Well, I would guess that you are probably not going to find anything useful about that topic on this site, or for that matter, anything useful about any other practical topic.

    We practice all-American squalor here. The politics here are just as vapid and offensive as the flame wars that start in every thread. That said, it is not often boring around here.

    Again, enjoy your stay, and good luck with your studies!

    No, I'm no Frysk but I know the saying and the meaning of it.
    The only funny thing is I don't know how to pronounce it properly :lol:
