Tax considerations moving from the US back to Canada?

Post by deanodotcom » Sat Oct 24, 2009 10:20 am

I moved to FL about 15 years ago. Will be moving to Calgary in a couple of months for a new job. Both my wife and I are Cndn citizens and also US citizens. We plan on keeping our house in Fl for now, since we'll be hammered on real estate - besides, we love the house and our neighbors and neighborhood. I plan on renting an apt or house in Calg for now, since real estate in Calgary is as crazy as Fl was a couple of years ago.

I understand there is a tax treaty between the US and Canada, so I plan on paying my Canadian taxes and if I have to top up to the IRS or get a small refund, then whatever - I'm not really concerned about the taxes - don't get me going about the US healthcare though :-)

Suggestions/thoughts on what I need to do re: any tax implications BEFORE moving back to Canada? Thank you.

Could you do me the favour of posting this on the tax forum.

AS I told you earlier, you are not immigrating, so this is the wrong forum for you.

Nelsona Non grata. Non pro. Search previous posts. Happy Browsing :D
