Canadian non-resident with US green card

Post by Phillyboy »

I left Canada many years ago and filed for non-resident for tax purpose. Since then I've never worked there and haven't visited for a long time.

I became a US green card holder last year and now live in US. If I work for a US company (headquartered in Canada) in US, is there any tax implication on my non-residency in Canada?

Speaking of which, it would be nice to get a couple more answers.

That company has offices in the U.S. and also in Canada (under different entities). Should I voluntarily tell them that I'm also a Canadian citizen but non-resident on tax purpose?

No ned. You could tell them so that they can use you more easily in a cross border situation, but from a tax point of view it absolutely doesn't matter.
