My wife and I are U.S. citizens. In 2011, I live and worked in Canada from 1/1/11 through 8/12/11. Then I moved back to the U.S. to continue living and working there. Can I file a U.S. tax return on my U.S. income and a Canadian tax return on my Canadian income, treating them separately.I ask because going through the U.S. tax return and trying to claim the Canadian income and taxes on it seems to be forcing me to be doubly taxed, paying U.S. taxes on income that was already subject to rather heavy Canadian taxes.Thank you,Mike
Doing taxes on my own.
You have to file a Return in Canada and pay tax on the income.But you will not be double taxed.The US and Canada have a tax treaty. So when you declare the income you earned in Canada on your US tax return you will receive a foreign tax credit for all taxes you paid in Canada,It sounds like you may need a bit of help filling out your US tax return as its a bit more complicated than usual.I hope that help.Debra Thal41014.2513024306
