Re: Business Tax Question American moving to Canada *web design

Hey Nate, I went through a similar situation when I moved from the U.S. to Canada. I kept my business based in the States and continued to file U.S. taxes for it. You'll need to report your worldwide income to the CRA, but the U.S.-Canada tax treaty should help you avoid double taxation. When I move...

Re: Import Car from US to Canada - Port of Entry and Tax

I went through something similar when I moved to Alberta. The taxes are based on your final destination, not where you cross the border. I crossed through BC but registered my car in Alberta and only had to pay the 5% GST. Just make sure you have all your paperwork showing you're moving to Alberta. ...

Re: Calculating the amount on like 25600

I've been in a similar situation before. For line 25600, you calculate the amount based on the percentage of your total Canadian income, not just the net income. As for deductions like RRSP and union dues, you can definitely include those for the Canadian portion of your income. That’s what I did, a...

Re: HST credit?

Hey! I’ve been in a similar situation before. You’ll report the full amount of your Canadian income on your US taxes, but you can use IRS Form 1116 to claim a credit for the HST you paid. It’s a bit of a process, but it helps prevent double taxation.

Re: Moving back to Canada, tax implications

We'll definitely need to be careful about the depreciation recapture for our Florida rental. Splitting the income 50/50 makes sense, but we'll reach out to a cross-border tax specialist to ensure we're handling everything correctly when we move back to Canada. I recently read an article about Cheap ...

Re: Income tax for Canadian working for US company

Hey there! I'm also Canadian and I've worked as an independent contractor for a US company. You're right, they won't give you a 1099 since you're not based in the US. You don't need a W-2 either because that's for employees. What you do need is a W-8 BEN-E form to certify that you're a foreign entit...
