Thanks Nelsona. What document do I need from the canadian bank to show the interest I paid last year? I have my monthly statements, but I dont know if that is an official document. The canadian bank does not issue a form 1098. How can claim that interest deduction in my US income tax?

I talked to the immigration lawyer who did my GC. He said that my main residence will be US because my family will still live here. I already have the 30 months of physical presence and I will meet the continuous presence because I will not be abroad longer than six months (I will be coming once a m...

I understand that in the five year period you need to have 2.5 years of physical presence in the US and maintain US as your principal residence (5 years). So, I understand that I if do not stay longer than 6 months out of the US, I will be fine. Nelsona, is it that your understanding?

The job is in Canada at the border. I just want to keep my US GC (it wasn't easy to get it). I would do this until I get my US citizenship (18 months left).

Thanks, Nelsona. Yes, I am a Canadian citizen with a US GC. Due to the potential lost of Provincial health coverage, I am asking the employer if they can hire me in US to get salary and health benefits in the US (employer has offices in US and Canada) and I can commute to work to Canada. Is that pos...
