Switching to TD as dependent

My wife holds TN visa. Is switching to TD by mail without having to visit border an option?

I was trying to avoid H1B to TD and back if I get another job but if no other option is viable, I may be left with only that option.

Canadian citizen leaving US- Owned house- Lease or sell

I posted in other forum. If I have to leave US suddenly, I can put my basic stuff in a storage and rent my home in US? I have got a very good mortgage rate so rent would cover all expenses including property manager expenses and still 60% of mortgage would add to equity. Sooner or later, I have to s...

Nelsona- Thanks. My house in Canada is on lease and I can avoid staying in Canada in middle of winter by going to milder places of my home country where I always have a owned home available where I visit. I want to return to Canada only after exhausting all possibilities of return to my current empl...

Is applying for B2 an option for Canadians? I did not know about it. If that is allowed, then I can apply online for B2 few days before my job ends and allow me to take care of the things while here. There is an increased possibility that same employer can call me back in few months when the situati...

H1B Loss of job- What are my options to return

I am likely to lose my current H1B job with I-140 approved but priority date not current. I own home in Chicago. My job is likely to be going away in two months. My employer does not revoke I-140 so I can return anytime if I get a job offer. But my question is when is the earliest I can return to US...

I came from Ontario to US about 6 years ago. Started on TN, switched to H1B next year. Many more years to go before retirement. Now exploring options for what do after retirement.

Need to make a decision whether to defer green card or take it in short time.

No tax treaty with US or Canada. Only known banks are HSBC and Barclays.

Flat tax rate of 15% for any level of income and year around temperature above 55 F on any day or night is appealing.

Never heard of expatriate tax before this so I need to do some research.
