  1. Subletting a Room and Taxes

    Hello!   My husband sublet a room in my apartment and currently I'm wondering if there is a difference between the lady transferring her money directly to the rental agency and transferring it to me first to transfer to the rental agency in terms of taxes. My husband always had the lady transfer her part of the rent directly to the rental agency, but now he has moved out and I'm wondering 1) which way is the correct way: for her to transfer the money to me first, or for her to continue transferring the money directly and 2) if there is a difference in taxes depending on which way she does it, for example: if she continues transferring the money directly to the rental agency does it mean that this money does not count as taxable income for me vs. if she transfers the money directly to me first is it considered taxable income?   Thanks a bunch!

  2. My husband is considering applying for German citizenship.   Because we are both non-German citizens, our daughter, who was born here, got conditional German citizenship at birth... Which means that in order to retain German citizenship at the age of 21 she must either live here 8 years prior to that, go to school here for six years, or do an Ausbildung here.   Now I'm wondering, if my husband becomes a German citizen, it seems there is a box to check you'd like your children and or spouse to become citizens with you. I'm wondering, is there an option for removing the conditionality of her German citizenship without forfeiting her other citizenships or would the only two options be: 1. Giving up her US citizenship to get non conditional German citizenship or 2. keeping conditional dual citizenship?   Thanks!
  3. Dear Toytown community,   - I know that the child of a German parent and American parent acquires both citizenships at birth and is not required to relinquish either. - I know a child born in Germany to two foreign parents (at least one American) acquires both citizenships at birth but must choose between German and American citizenship before turning 23.   What I would like some clarification on is whether it matters how the German parent acquired their citizenship, i.e. jus soli, jus sanguinis, or naturalization, and specifically whether a naturalized German parent and American-born parent(American by both blood and birth in the US) can still pass on dual citizenship to their child without the child needing to choose between citizenships before 23.   This site [ http://germany.usembassy.gov/acs/dual_nationality/ ] seems to indicate that it's only possible when the German parent is German by blood or birth in Germany, and not naturalized:     Could someone confirm or refute this and point me to an official German source on this?   Thank you!
