by | Aug 7, 2018 | Media, Radio

In a recent CJAD 800AM Dollars & Sense radio show, our President & CEO Matt C. Altro and our Executive Vice-President David A. Altro answered some common client cross-border questions that they have received many times over the years. The radio show which aired on October 16, 2018 covered topics such as tax traps for dual-citizens who have moved back to Canada, using a corporation to hold title to US property, the planning considerations when a Canadian marries an American, adding children to title of a US property, US green card holders moving back to Canada, and the cross border trust. Matt and David also answered caller questions throughout the show, with questions such as: “How do I file tax returns if I am a dual-citizen?;” “How do I report income if it is earned outside of the US/Canada?;” “What’s the problem with having a TFSA while being a dual-citizen?;” and “I am a Canadian owning property in the US, how do I transfer it into a cross border trust?”
