Is it still a good idea for snowbirds to own property in the U.S.? Do you have clients who have children studying in the States or a son or daughter marrying a U.S. citizen? How will Canadian small business tax reforms co-mingle with the most significant U. S. tax reform since 1986?

The CE Summits offer deep, new knowledge and 10 CE/CPD Credits, too. Register before May 15 for best tuition offers.

There are dramatic changes constantly occurring affecting cross-border issues that implicate Canadian taxpayers. Canadians married to U.S citizens, with kids studying abroad, and snowbirds are all affected by the recent U.S. tax reforms, and there are implications from the stalling NAFTA talks.

Advisors: join Canada’s most brilliant instructors and cross-border tax experts and get up to speed on these issues that could have deep-rooted effects to the majority of Canadian families.
Evelyn Jacks will be joined by cross-border expert, Dean Smith at three of the four Canadian cities on the Spring CE Summits Tour this May and June.

“The U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (President Trump’s tax reform) is the largest tax reform undertaken by Congress since President Reagan’s reforms in 1986. Major parts of the legislation deal with how the U.S. taxes foreign income. U.S. taxpayers abroad are significantly impacted by these changes,”  says Dean.

He explains why this knowledge is integral to helping clients mitigate tax risks and achieve financial success, even in light of the fact that a NAFTA deal might not be reached this year – leading to economic repercussions for Canadians with businesses abroad.

“Professional advisors need to understand these impacts so they can provide proactive and timely advice to their clients—both those with U.S. investments, and U.S. persons living in Canada. Failure to do so may result in additional unexpected taxes and compliance burdens.”

You can’t miss this educational opportunity to get insight into these issues, network with other professionals, and learn from some of the top industry experts in Winnipeg on May 29, Calgary on May 30, Vancouver on May 31, or Toronto on June 6.
