CJAD Radio – Cross-Border Tax Traps

by Mar 7, 2019Media, Radio

On a recent CJAD 800AM radio show, our President & CEO Matt C. Altro reviewed several cross-border tax traps for Canadians, Americans living in Canada, and dual-citizens. The radio show which aired on February 25, 2019, offered listeners a fundamental understanding on many cross-border tax traps and issues such as the differences between the U.S. and Canadian tax systems, the IRS and taxation of Foreign Trusts (TFSAs, RESPs, ETFs), tax planning for returning dual-citizens, the pros and cons of renouncing U.S. citizenship, the Canadian tax treatment of private companies owned by U.S. citizens, the differences between Passive Foreign Investment Companies (PFICs) and Controlled Foreign Corporations (CFCs), U.S. estate tax planning, an overview of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), and cross-border retirement planning with U.S. retirement accounts. Matt also answered caller questions throughout the show as well.
