Joint Account in USA

If my US Citizen husband and I have a joint account with a lump sum in it (in USA) .. I am a non resident alien .. can he gift that lump sum to me and then I alone claim it in Canada, tax free from USA? but we leave it in USA? The 1099 has his name on it only...but it is a joint account?

Husband claiming an exemption for me .. Canadian spouse.

My husband has filed MFS in the past and claimed an exemption for me (Canadian) on his 1040. If I am gifted US money and leave it in a bank in the USA, I realize that it will be exempt from US taxation but .... can he still claim an exemption for me or not? Not sure if the fact that the income would...

$$ Gift from US Expat to Canadian wife

I see my husband can gift me up to $152000 US (2018). This money would just sit in the bank in Canada (for now), I realize that in Canada there is no benefit to this gift due to the attribution rule BUT would he also have to report the income in the USA? Do they have a similar rule, I cannot find an...

So ... if i exchanged money 5 times in a year, one time is a gain and the other 4 times are losses .... even though the losses exceed the one gain ... I would have to report the gain for the year?

Gains/Losses on Currency Exchange

Sold a house in USA, put the money in our US bank account. I am going to move some of this money to Canada via vbce ... When I move it, if the exchange rate is higher (Can to US) than when we sold the house, I am understanding that the gain in excess of $200 will have to be reported as a capital gai...

Does one need to owe money to file a VDP for an unfiled T1135?

The VDP has 5 conditions that must be met ... the 5th being Payment.

I did report the income so ... does this mean I do not meet this condition and therefore
can't file a VDP for a T1135 for 2016?

tks

Filing the Statement to be Taxed as A US Resident

I happened to come across this statement on this forum.... a fellow was asking why Nelsona was suggesting to not file a statement (to treat spouse as resident) with his 1040, and he said Your spouse is a Cdn citizen/resident, and, as such she is always allowed to file a 1040. So joining you on your ...

Tks. You mention that Canada gives no FTC interest credit for US Citizens ... what if he is a Canadian citizen too?

Re: How do I report the Sale of USA Personal Use Property

No, it has been 12 years since he came up.
So, the capital gains will zero out in Canada and I will only claim a FTC for his US pension income and interest?
Tks.

How do I report the Sale of USA Personal Use Property

Husband moved to Canada, we eventually sold his home. On the Canadian tax return he has a loss but on his American return he has a gain. How does one report the taxes paid in the USA? The amount of money we spent finishing this home off since he moved to Canada .. exceeded any possible gain in Canada.
