Posted date : Nov 6, 2017

Can anyone comment on what happens if you overstay your 182 days in the U.S.? I understand that the IRS can consider you taxable on worldwide income, but do they contact you? Has anyone had this happen to them? If it’s over by a few days, are they still going to make an effort to […]

IRS Form 8840

Posted date : Nov 4, 2017

We have filed 8840 forms for a number of years now, having no U.S. income to declare. In Dec. 2016, my lucky wife won a jackpot in a Nevada casino and, of course, they withheld 30%. In Jan. 2017, she filed a U.S. tax return with an ITIN number, again with no other U.S. income […]

Wondering if someone could confirm the due date necessary to file a Form 8840. Mike B. Ontario Response: Ed.: There does seem to be some confusion about this issue.

Posted date : Nov 4, 2017

Any further information about a rumour that Canadians who have property in the U.S. and stay for longer than four months in a calendar year are deemed to pay income tax, the same as an American citizen would?
