If you want to claim a foreign tax credit on the US tax return - yes - that 2013 tax return should be amended in order top claim such credit.However - you would not be able to claim a foreign tax credit for self-employment taxes - only for income taxes paid in Canada.Regarding self-employment taxes - we need to be crear where services were performed and whether the person was classified as a resident alien or as a nonresident alien in the US.If the wife is a nonresident alien (based on her visa status) and services were performed outside the US - she woudl not be subject to self-employment taxes in the US.
