Operating a Canadian business as a US citizen
The Trump tax reforms made entirely changed the tax reforms around operating a business as a US taxpayer resident in Canada. This webinar will provide an overview of those changes and examine strategies for dealing with the complexity as a Canadian resident US citizen who wants to incorporate. Incorporation can still provide significant tax benefits — even for those with double tax exposure. Specifically, the webinar will cover at a high level:
- Tax benefits of incorporation
- The US repatriation tax and strategies for offsetting it;
- The US GILTI rules and strategies to mitigate them;
- Other tax planning ideas for incorporated business owners.
