    US TAXES-THE BASICS

    Presenter is Pat Fournier CPA (CA),  CPA( WA)– JPS Accounting Services Inc

    A good place for those just starting out

    Young people fresh to tax reporting and those new to being a citizen abroad and reporting to the US.  This webinar gives a brief overview of the most obvious areas of concern – Tax Returns, Foreign Reporting, FBARs, and a quick word on the Streamline Program (catch up program)

    The ticket price to this event is $10 USD.  We chose this price point realizing that many of our members might like to attend one, two, or three of our sessions and we wanted to select a ticket price that was reasonable.  We would expect that the last session on Business owners would attract its own, individual audience.   

    The event will be recorded. Only people who purchase a ticket will receive the recording. If you cannot make the event, but would like a recording, please purchase a ticket in advance.

    We would like all those RSVPing to know that tickets are non-refundable.  But these funds are going toward a good cause - the 2022 GOTV effort all across Canada.  And we thank everyone for supporting this effort.  I would add here that if you find yourself in a position to donate more than the $10 per ticket, please know that no donation, large or small, will be turned away.  Every dollar donated = four more CallHub calls or 10 texts to members.  It all matters and it all adds up.

    US TAXES - IRA'S, GIFTING, ESTATE PLANNING

    Presenter is: Charmaine Ko, Polaris Tax Counsel, cross-border tax lawyer

    While the Canadian Income Tax Act contains certain provisions which can permit a tax-neutral transfer of an IRA to an RRSP, the process is not without its pitfalls, and the right conditions must be in place for such transfers to occur on a tax-neutral basis. This webinar will provide an overview of the relevant rules and provide some examples of when a tax-neutral transfer may and may not be possible.

    This webinar will also provide an overview of the basics of the US gift and estate tax regimes and the US lifetime gift and estate tax exemption, with consideration to the application of the Canada-US Tax Treaty.

    The ticket price to this event is $10 USD.  We chose this price point realizing that many of our members might like to attend one, two, or three of our sessions and we wanted to select a ticket price that was reasonable.  We would expect that the last session on Business owners would attract its own, individual audience.

    OPERATING A CANADIAN BUSINESS AS A US CITIZEN

    Presenter is: Max Reed, cross-border lawyer at Polaris Tax counsel.  You can read more about Max Reed here --> https://polaristax.com/max-reed/

    The 2017 tax reforms 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. 

    The ticket price to this event is $20.22 USD.   We would like all those RSVPing to know that tickets are non-refundable.  But these funds are going toward a good cause - the 2022 GOTV effort all across Canada.  And we thank everyone for supporting this effort.

    The event will be recorded. Only people who purchase a ticket will receive the recording. If you cannot make the event, but would like a recording, please purchase a ticket in advance.

    I would add here that if you find yourself in a position to donate more than the $20.22 per ticket, please know that no donation, large or small, will be turned away.  Every dollar donated = four more CallHub calls or 10 texts to members.  It all matters and it all adds up.
