    US Tax Seminar in Vancouver, March 9 at 11 a.m.

    JPS Financial Services will present their popular US Tax Seminar on Saturday, March 9, at 11 a.m. This year is a "must attend" - the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) has changed US tax law in 2018.

    Major changes include a standard deduction that has practically doubled but also includes elimination of personal exemption amounts and important changes you'll want to know if you itemize deductions.

    This Seminar is critical for US citizens in Canada who would like a comprehensive overview for filing US taxes and informational forms for the 2018 tax year.

    Topics to be covered include:

         - TCJA changes taking affect for the 2018 tax year

         - Who needs to be aware of US tax compliance

         - Tax basics for US Citizens in Canada

         - Common scenarios and forms that need to be filed

         - Estates and Gifts

    Join us at Kensington Community Centre, 5175 Dumfries, Vancouver, V5P 3A2. Cost of the seminar is $20 -- and you must register in advance.

    Buy tickets at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4076899 or mail a $20 cheque of money order made out to "Democrats Abroad Vancouver" to JPS Financial Services, 205 - 2248 Elgin Ave, Port Coquitlam, BC V3C 2B2.

    Very sorry, no "at the door" registrations accepted at this event because handouts will be pre-printed for participants.
