Hi and welcome to JA Betty.

The only Us taxes here you owe are transfer taxes for any sale of real estate.These are negotiable here as part of a sale.

Reference to transfer taxes..

There are no federal income taxes here if you are a Canadian and file there.You may well owe taxes on the sale in Canada.
