 Odd Dividend paperwork question...

Apparently I don't qualify for this year's dividend even though I was out of state caring for a terminally ill family member, because it is not a legal relationship. So, I have to send in an application retraction form unless I can find a way to still qualify.

Anyone have an idea? Honestly, that was going to be reloading/hunting rifle money

Be very careful with that one
The $1000 or so isn't worth nearly the hassle you will face If they determine it's outside the rules

were you married last year? she became family last year, call the office you can plead your case. I got a wiaver when I was down south for 4 months. granted it was less time but they denied me and sent me a letteer to call, I called and got my dividend.

They almost denied me when I checked the box "Out of state looking for work."

I had to write a statement saying I was trying to get a job on campus while paying out of state tuition.

I'd love to see them tighten up the rules, no offence. It really chaps my ass to know military and families who have been out of state more than a decade getting the PFD after being stationed here a year or two, while claiming this no income tax state as home. Alaska residency should not be a tax dodge and free money the rest of your career!

When I was 19-20, I came home on leave and walked into Pay N Save or some such looking for a hunting licence. I thought I was going to be lynched when I asked which was cheaper, resident or military. Had to explain I was born in Anchorage and graduated from Chugiak.

How would I plead my case when the form clearly states "legal family?" I'd personally rather err far to the side of caution and just miss a second year then risk prison/fines/having to repay every dividend I ever got...

Sorry I didn't read the whole post haha. Your right, it's not worth risking and even losing any future Pfd's.

But if you think about it, if you were in prison you'd have less shit to deal with then you do now. No worries about rent, heat, job, etc. Just gotta watch ur ass in the shower.

Not PFD related, but changing your state of residency for taxes is 1 piece of paper, and it isn't restricted to AK As soon as I found a legal way of claiming residency in a tax free state I did so...18 years ago. I haven't been paying taxes since then. It wasn't until I moved to AK in 08 that I changed my residency for tax purposes to AK.

PFD related...once a guy moves out of state without the intent to return, he is ineligible. The state should crack down on the "intent to return" part and change the rules related to absences.

Well, the PFD office called today about my application. Apparently I wasn't out of state long enough to need the absence forms.

Translation:

Danny Boy gets his PFD this upcoming year

At the rate we are going $150 (45 gallons) runs us about 2 weeks at -40. A lot more if it is warm out.
