4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 7, 2012 Roi resident passes awayHourglass Reports A colleague, James Bodmer, was lost this past week on March 31. Our condolences go out to his family and friends. This was BodmerÂ’s second tour at Reagan Test Site. His rst tour was from 1988 to 1992, where he lived on Kwajalein and worked for Telemetry on Carlos and Gagan. He left in 1992 to earn his bachelorÂ’s degree in biomedical engineering and then a masterÂ’s in electrical and computer engineering, both from the University of Iowa. Bodmer returned on Dec. 31, 2005, as a hardware engineer with Kwajalein Range Services, living on RoiNamur. He was the KRS lead engineer on the software development efforts for the RDO Sensors Project and also for the Environmental Monitoring System for the RTS Optics Modernization Program. These projects enabled remote monitoring and control of the radar and optics sensors, and provided local and remote operators and maintainers with enhanced situational awareness of the sensor equipment. He worked closely with MIT Lincoln Laboratory to coordinate and implement this project to give all RTS radars improved reliability and enhanced troubleshooting capabilities. Besides the RSP and EMS development programs, Bodmer also maintained the ROSA Common Digital Hardware at ALTAIR on Roi and at the MPS-36Â’s on Kwajalein. He was very much into computer technology and was interested in the development of Rich Internet Applications, Server Side Web applications and relational databases. On a personal note, Bodmer participated in the Rustman Triathlon in 1989 and 1990. He was an avid scuba diver and photographer. He was a past president of the Roi-Namur DolphinÂ’s Club. Bodmer also designed and maintained the Roi-Namur Dolphins website and many of his photos are posted there. Bodmer was looking forward to hiking the Appalachian Trail with his father later this month, something they did together each year. He was also planning on spending some time afterwards in Amherst, Mass., at his fatherÂ’s home. Bodmer was a hard-working engineer, a good friend and a sincerely good person who will be missed by all who knew and worked with him. There will be a Celebration of Life ceremony for Bodmer at 6 p.m., Friday, at the Tradewinds Theater. Everyone is invited to attend. Please come with a small tale to share about our friend and colleague.

The CRC is mandated by the Compact of Free Association between the U.S. and Republic of the Marshall Islands. It is one of several forums, including the Joint Committee Meeting, Working Level Joint Committee Meeting and the Joint Labor Relations Board, held on a regular basis between the U.S. and RMI officials. The CRC focuses on community-level issues of mutual interest between USAKA, the RMI and the Kwajalein Atoll Local Government. In the recent meeting, the U.S. delegation was headed by USAKA/RTS Commander Col. Joseph Gaines, and the RMI delegation was led by Chief Secretary Casten Nemra.

If I work overseas there is no need to le a tax return because I don’t pay any income taxes. This is false. Those eligible to le IRS Form 2555 (Foreign Earned Income Exclusion) must le a tax return to take advantage of the foreign income exclusion. See IRS Publication 54 (Tax Guide for U.S. Citizens and Resident Aliens Abroad) and IRS.gov for all the details. 2. I do not have to pay state income taxes because I am overseas. This may be false and the answer depends on the given state tax law. The question of whether a taxpayer must pay a state income tax depends upon the law of the state, territory or possession which they are a resident. Some states have income tax for “in-state residents” but not for “out-ofstate residents.” Taxpayers are highly encouraged to consult their respective state department of revenue. Failure to do so may lead to owing delinquent state taxes, penalties and interest. 3. I automatically qualify for the foreign income exclusion bene t as soon as I leave the United States. This is false. An otherwise eligible taxpayer quali es for the exclusion when he or she is outside the United States for a period of 330 days (physical presence test) or is a bona de resident (for entire tax year) in a foreign country. The days do not have to be consecutive. Extensions may be requested. See IRS Publication 54 and IRS.gov 4. If I stay abroad for part of the tax year I can receive “partial” foreign earned income exclusion. This is false. A taxpayer must qualify under either the physical presence test or bona de resident. If the taxpayer does not meet either test the taxpayer cannot claim the exclusion. 5. Even if I am overseas I must le my taxes on April 17. This is false. Taxpayers living overseas receive an automatic 2 month extension (June 17) to le their tax return. However, interest will be charged on any tax due as shown on the return from April 17. L i s t e d b e l o w a r e Listed below are s o m e c o m m o n t a x i s s u e s some common tax issues e n c o u n t e r e d b y t a x p a y e r s a t U S A K A / R T S encountered by taxpayers at USAKA/RTS. T a x p a y e r s s h o u l d f a m i l i a r i z e t h e m s e l v e s w i t h t h e v a r i o u s Taxpayers should familiarize themselves with the various r u l e s a n d c o n s u l t w i t h t a x p r o f e s s i o n a l s w h e n i n d o u b t F o r m s a n d rules and consult with tax professionals when in doubt.
