Wruk, Brian D.

  • A revised an updated edition that factors in the latest 2013 changes to tax law — the definitive financial guide for Americans planning a move to Canada

    Hundreds of thousands of Americans are living in Canada today — and the tax issues for everyone from green card holders living in Canada to Canadians returning home from years in the U.S. are astounding and complex. In easy-to-understand language, The American in Canada focuses on the eight key areas of transition planning: immigration, customs, cash management, income tax, retirement, estate planning, risk management, and investments.

  • Do you have to file tax returns with the IRS?
  • What income do you have to declare, and in which country? Should you leave your IRAs and 401(k)s in the U.S.?
  • What immigration avenues are available to help you move into Canada?
  • Do you qualify for Canada’s socialized healthcare programs?
  • What should you do with your home or rental property in the U.S.?

    These questions, and many more, are answered in this essential guide for the American living in Canada.
