Ottoman Empire

2014_12_04 Ottoman Empire medium_2710788094As we look back 100 years to the start of World War I, let us look to California where you can exclude payments received from the Ottoman Empire from your income.  I wonder how many people this still affects as the last veterans of WWI are now all deceased.  Perhaps a ‘Freedom of Information Act’ request would get us an answer?

I know this is a random thought, but I would enjoy hearing your thoughts on this subject below or on our Facebook or Google+ pages.
