    Webinar: Operating a Corporation as a U.S. Citizen in Canada Oct. 22nd

    Democrats Abroad Canada is pleased to offer the following webinar

    Operating a Corporation
    as a U.S. Citizen in Canada

    Sunday, October 22, 2017
    4:00pm ADT / 3:00pm EDT / 12:00pm PDT

    US citizens living in Canada are subject to two tax systems: Canada and the United States. In the eyes of the US tax system, all activities conducted outside of the United States are “foreign” and therefore subject some of the most complex and expensive provisions of the US tax code. This is especially true of those who run a business through a corporation. The US tax rules that apply to those who own Canadian corporations are the same as the rules that apply to large multinationals such as Apple and Walmart.

    This webinar will address the US tax consequences to US citizens in Canada who:

    · Are incorporated professionals (doctor, dentist, lawyer, consultant etc.);

    · Run a business

    · Use a corporation to invest in stock or securities

    · Use a corporation or a family trust to split income with a spouse or kids;

    A survey of some common Canadian corporate tax planning techniques and whether they work in the United States will also be addressed.

    When
    Sunday, October 22, 2017
    4:00PM ADT / 3:00PM EDT/ 12:00PM PDT
    Duration: 90 minutes
