Canadians & The IRS Image

Canadians & The IRS

By Angela Preteau

Did you know that the number of days you spend in the U.S. each year can deem you to be a U.S. resident for tax purposes? This would mean that you would be subject to all the U.S. tax laws and reporting regimes. If you are not careful, you could technically be in the United States as an “illegal alien.” You could even be a United States citizen and not realize it, and that has tax consequences.

More and more Canadians are traveling to the United States on vacation, investing in U.S. securities, purchasing U.S. real estate, and even marrying U.S. citizens, and the majority of them are doing so without realizing there can be some potential tax consequences to their actions. Don’t get caught – get the tax facts.
