Another heads up, my 2008 Canadian sold Civic, which was importable 5 years ago, became non compliant once tire se...

Re: Importing car to US

You have to contact Honda/Accura USA HQ and ask for a letter that states that the VIN meets US requirements and that it is up to date for recalls. Key issue for Canadian cars of that period may be tire pressure sensor which is impractical to retrofit. Do you have this? This is what stopped me. You s...

Oh I see, we might use the insurance value, which was a guess at the time, as our justification.

Residence, accounts, drivers liscence etc maintained in Canada.

Can one retain dual nation filing as TN

Let's say one wanted to work TN in US but avoid Canadian Deemed disposition trigger. If one maintained house in both countries, drivers liscence and on and on, is this possible? Or does the treaty force you to give up Canadian tax residency after the transition year if you are working and living in ...

Is there something about recording the gain with cra on art and paying when the art is actually sold?

Isn't there a special US tax rate on fine art capital gains?

Selling House in Canada while TN/TD

Big capital gain in the Canada house protected as primary residence regarding CRA.

If we are TN/TD filing married US, we have 500k or so protected?

TN as relates to Fine Art

If I retain a house in Canada and have a second home in Florida, but take a TN in US which puts me over the IRS six month threshold, am I forced to exit and deem dispose Fine Art still in Canada?

Is there a status where I am filing US on US income but filing Canada on world income with TN?
