How we can help you

Cross Border Taxation

Multi-jurisdictional tax and reporting requirements are becoming ever more prevalent as more Canadians are working internationally and foreign individuals and corporations are performing work in Canada. We have seen an explosive growth in this area of tax and we have grown alongside it by preparing hundreds of multi-jurisdictional returns in Canada and the United States each year.

We have the experience and knowledge to orchestrate your specific cross border tax filing requirements. Our deep understanding allows us to determine your tax residency in Canada and the United States. From there, we can identify and prepare your specific personal tax filing requirements in both countries to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), any applicable states, and Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). We can also aid in nonresident Canadian tax filings required by American corporations completing work in Canada.

We are able to instantly electronic file your United States Federal and State personal income tax returns and FBAR/FinCen 114 forms to the IRS.
