Question #28 − Did you have any income from U.S. sources? I own a Canadian small business (corporation) and it was paid by a U.S. company for my consulting in 2019. Should I answer ‘Yes’? Or did the small business have the revenue from a U.S. source, but my income was from my Canadian small business (corporation)?

Ed.: You can truthfully say that you had no income from a U.S. source. It was income to your company. This is a very fine line and I would make sure that you had serious legal and accounting advice on “taking a job away from an American citizen.” This designation could get you barred from the U.S., so caution is warranted; or a green card, of course.
