US Taxes

 

Many U.S. citizens, living in Canada, have been unaware of their US tax filing requirements or puzzled about what they need to do and where to start.

Additionally, Canadian citizens who have U.S. income, either through employment or a property located in the U.S., may not realize that they too are required to file a U.S. income tax return on those earnings.

 

We are here to help!!!


There are three distinct filing requirements for all U.S. citizens, even if you live outside of the United States.

  1. The IRS requires all U.S. citizens to file a U.S. income tax return annually and report their worldwide income.
  2. Specific U.S. Information Returns are also required to be filed by U.S. citizens who have a RRSP, Tax-free Saving account (TFSA) and or a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP)
  3. All U.S. citizens are required to submit a Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts. (FBAR) if they have one or more accounts located outside of the USA and those combined balances exceed $10,000.00.US
