We logged into NetFlix without our VPN and it worked! The selection is drastically different than the U.S. selection and sub-titles are only available for German. My wife is a native Dutch speaker so we’ve gotten used to having English sub-titles. I wish the German NetFlex would at least have them.
Interestingly, NetFlix is also in Belgium now. Since we spend about 20%-25% of our time in the Antwerp, Belgium area, it was nice to see NetFlix with Dutch sub-titles in Antwerp. Gaby really loved that.
Ideally, NetFlix should let you choose what sub-title languages you want in an account settings / profile area. Maybe some day…
June 15th is the filing date to apply for an automatic extension for your 2013 tax return. Living outside of the U.S. only automatically extends it for 60-days. File the extension (it’s easy) by the 15th to extend it another four months to October 15th. If you owe tax, you should have paid it by April 15th or you’ll have a penalty added on.

June 30th is the filing deadline for the Foreign Financial Account filing. The penalty for not filing could be up to $10,000.00 so PLEASE file this one! You only need to worry about it if the account maximum value ever exceeded $10,000.00 during the year. Don’t forget to convert to Euros so multiply your Euro value by the exchange rate (about 1.36 now). The good news is you can file electronically. I just did it and it’s pretty fast. You will need your bank account information, including the bank’s address.
