Wealth Management For U.S. Persons
Being a U.S. person living in Canada can cause significant headaches when it comes to dealing with taxes, and for good reason. It is complex, the rules are constantly changing, and if you’re not interested in spending the time to become an expert yourself then filing taxes becomes expensive. We are big advocates of hiring professionals with the right expertise, but also of simplifying where it makes sense.
You don’t need to be the expert, but you should know about the main issues and the questions to ask to ensure you have the right framework and team of professionals supporting you.
