Customer Question

If a Canadian citizen, whose spouse recently deceased, sells property in the US (FL) that they used for vacations what are the rules for their getting the proceeds from the sale. I understand there is a 15% of the sale that is held. Are there any other considerations?

Customer: Florida
JA: Has any paperwork been filed?
Customer: The death certificate

I am sorry to hear about your loss. If you could provide me some more information, that'd be great. Can you tell me what the 15% is that you are referring to specifically?
