son of it is accomplished

I went to the bank today—Shinhan Bank, I mean—and did my three things: (1) I got the international wire transfer done; (2) I renewed my cell phone's e-certificate so I can continue to do cell-phone banking; (3) I checked about my international-wire-transfer limit. Item (3) turned out not to require me to do anything: the teller told me I was good through 2025 because I had registered for a transfer-limit increase last year, and the only problem would be if I were to try to transfer more than $50,000 a year out of the country. Since that amount is more than I currently make per year, that's not even going to be an issue.

So all the admin bullshit is done until tax time rolls around. And if I recall correctly, dealing with the tax documents isn't that huge of an inconvenience: it's just a matter of going to the tax office and following instructions. The staffers there do all the rest. Woo-hoo!
