Re: Emigrant return T1161 & T1243

You're right. I had taken your referring to GC and marriage as to meaning you were electing Jan 01. All you need to do now is amend your 2018 Cdn return.

Re: Emigrant return T1161 & T1243

so, you need to present all information when you originally post. You said you were choosing jan 1 because of marriage and GC, when apparently you knew IRS rules made it Jan 1. I am familiar with the 5-year F1 rule, so were you, so why did you not mention it? Anyway, the point i was wanting you (and...

Re: Emigrant return T1161 & T1243

The reason that you did not become a tax resident of US until June is because of the special tax treatment of f1 status, which exempts days spent in US from being counted towards SPT. Even tourists do not get that exemption, which prevented you from becoming tx resident YEARS ago (since you lived in...

Re: Moving gift/inheritance from Canada to US

That's fine. The point is to get the money in USD in Canada. Then transfer/wire/ carry, etc to a US bank.

Re: Residency Status in Canada for the year I left (maintain residential ties)

You are considered a "deemed non-resident, and shpuld file a departure return with August departure date. CRA views becoming a resident of another treaty country (satisfying both IRS and treaty definitions) sufficient to "push" you out of canada, forcing you to file departure taxes, etc.

Re: IRS 6013 (g) election and Canadian Spouses's rental income

You are correct that once you elect to use 6013(g) and the choose to revoke it, you will not be able to use it again. Just to be clear though, if she uses it as rental property she cannot claim it as principal residence for that time. So, not sure what exemption you would be claiming in future, eith...

Re: IRS 6013 (g) election and Canadian Spouses's rental income

Re: American citizen gifting real estate to Canadian spouse: Tax implications in Canada

Ok. So they will pay the tax art departure. There is no way to avoid the CDn tax on the time when the American owned it. The deemed disposition would be an election, not mandatory.
