so this is just if you leave the country and then re-enter to your same address? 

What about if just go to another province for a week and then return to same address? 

Same thing of course. The last reported address is the key word.

"Previously, most immigration offices in Thailand wanted a new TM30 report within 24 hours every time a person left and reentered the country. This change eliminates that requirement."

We have to return to the last reported address. If not, a TM30 will still be needed.

What’s a TM 30?

There is a pic of one in the OP.

It is a report of your arrival at a residence by the owner or possessor of it.

Well any amendment to the TM30 is a step in the right direction,but still confused I am. My wife and I own our home in Chiang Mai,she submitted the TM30 to inform immigration that I live at the property she owns arghhh. We have been considering doing a road trip to Sukhothai,Tak,Hua hin,phuket and back,about 6 weeks in total. Upon our return to our home in CM does she need to re submit the TM30 to tell them I am back at home and my permanent address. 
The other amendment could be,people that live here on a permanent basis like myself,Retirement visa should only need to inform immigration once you change your permanent address. Taking one less drama out of the equation.

When you extend your visa, and you are outside the original "valid period" when the TM30 was filed while on your previous extension, do you have to file a new TM30 with your new "valid period" in 24 hours?

You would have to be outside the country if your temporary permit to stay was not valid or on a overstay.

When you apply for a extension of stay it extends your stay. No need for another TM30 report.

What valid period?

 

I read that to mean, only needing to report once for the same location during the duration of one's ME visa or re-entry permit, which would mean once per year...

 

But after a person renews their extension and re-entry permit annually and then leaves the country and returns (in some distant world) after that, then a new TM30 would be required???

None would be needed unless you changed your permanent place of residence.

 Ya, I saw your comment above... Just wonder if that's the way various IO's will actually interpret it. Time will tell.

 

AFAIK, my annual extensions of stay and re-entry permits are not "extended."  They run one year and they expire... And in order to remain, I have to apply for new ones before the old ones expire, AKA, lose their "validity".
