U.S. Estate Tax for Canadians Income Tax Considerations

As a Canadian you may be unaware that your estate could be impacted by U.S. estate tax if you own U.S. securities or U.S. real estate. This article highlights the potential U.S. estate tax implications that could apply to Canadian estates and suggests a number of planning opportunities to help Canadians minimize these taxes. The strategies discussed in this article apply to individuals who are tax residents of Canada and are not U.S. citizens or taxed as a U.S. person. All amounts quoted are in U.S. dollars.

U.S. Citizens Living in Canada Income Tax Considerations

Many U.S. citizens have lived in Canada most of their lives and often think of themselves as Canadians. This may be true in terms of national pride and culture; however, their U.S. citizenship means they must fulfil their U.S. income tax filing requirements. U.S. citizenship is acquired by being born in the U.S. or being born to U.S. citizen parents, and often the tax implications of being a U.S. citizen are overlooked. The U.S. imposes income tax on the worldwide income of U.S. persons, including U.S. citizens, U.S. residents and Green Card holders, regardless of where they reside. As a result, U.S. persons have annual U.S. income tax filing and reporting requirements that exist regardless of where they call home, and how much time they spend in the U.S.

Retirement Planning

Pension Income-splitting Provides Tax Planning Opportunities for Couples

The pension income-splitting rules provide an effective, yet simple, strategy to lower family taxes. Being able to split pension income provides an opportunity for couples to reduce their overall family tax bill by taking advantage of a spouse’s or common law partner’s lower marginal tax rate where retirement incomes are disproportionate.
