Foreign tax

Post by taxquestions »

Are departure taxes on business inventory by a foreign country deductible as a business expense on my Schedule C?
Example, Jan 1st I depart Canada and move to USA. Canada hits my sole prop with a departure tax (capital gain) on my inventory FMV.
Is this a deductible?

You've had lots of Q's on this topic, you might want to contact a pro.

Also, deemed disposition on business inventory in Canada is an ELECTION made by you.
Nelsona Non grata. Non pro. Search previous posts. Happy Browsing :D
