Vonage App Going Away
Just received notice that as of Feb. 28, 2020 the free/low cost Vonage App will be discontinued and all credits must be used by then since there will be no refunds. For those with the Vonage App adding credits now should be done sparingly. International calls between those with the App are free. Calls to those without the app Cost only one cent per minute. Any suggestions for other comparable services?

Residency requirements and taxes
I've been following this forum for at least a year now, and I imagine this question has been asked, so I ask forgiveness for asking again. I'm investigating buying an apartment in Italy. Until I retire I won't be able to spend more than a couple months a year there. But some day I hope to spend much more time in Italy- probably in about 5 years. I would consider, at that time, applying for elective residency. I understand all the requirements. Here's my question. At what point do we have to pay taxes in Italy? Did I read somewhere that 183 days in the country is a cutoff for paying taxes?
Thanks so much!!
