The tax treaty between the U.S. and Germany exempted American nationals
working for U.S. state government agencies from paying German tax. And,
because I was out of the U.S. long enough and not working for the U.S.
federal government, I was exempt from U.S. tax.
Alas, whatever harmonic convergence conspired to invoke this particularly
fortuitous circumstance has never happened to me since... but it was fun
while it lasted ;)
Cheers, and thx for your reply!
