Hello

If a Canadian is in the US for longer than the 182 days they are taxed as a resident alien from that day on. Income received prior to meeting the day mark would be Nonresident alien and only taxed on US sourced income. After that they are taxed on worldwide income unless they can show that their closer to connection to Canada over rides their stay in the US.
