First time filing income tax return in the US

Post by too_light »

I came from Canada in January 2022, and I will file my income tax return for the first time in the US. However, I had to sell a property in Canada as a non-resident, and I will need to file a tax return in Canada. My questions are:
1 - Does it make a difference if I file tax first in Canada or in the US?
2 - How do I take advantage of the double taxation treaty so as not to be double taxed if I first file tax in one country or the other?
3 - I left Canada on 18-Jan-2022. Before leaving, I had a certificate of disability from CRA. Can I still claim the disability tax credit in Canada for my 2022 tax return because of the time I spent in Canada in 2022?
4 - I sold my house in Canada at loss. Is there any amount limit to claim the loss?
