(I live in California, but...) This is for my US citizen friend who is a Canadian permanent resident living in Vancouver, BC: If I am below the income threshhold ($13,600 over age 65) for filing but I am an independent contractor and I have paid into the Canadian Pension Plan for over 40 years, so I don't have to pay US Social Security or Medicare taxes, do I need to file a 1040 at all? (I already filed my FBAR.)
You do not need to file. Since FBAR is separate from 1040, I don't see why filing FBAR would make you want to file 1040. Just make sure, when your pension income goes up, that you resume filing.
