The Canada-United States Income Tax Convention and other amending protocols are intended to prevent “double taxation” and enhance cooperation between the two countries. The 5th Protocol (set of changes) to the convention was designed to:
• Eliminate source-country “withholding” tax on cross-border interest payments
• Allow tax payers arbitration to otherwise insoluble double tax issues
• Ensure that there is no double taxation on immigrant gains
While the convention may provide for certain tax exemptions, this does not include exemption from filing income tax returns id the U.S. Failure to file as prescribed in the U.S. can result in the exemptions sought being denied by the IRS and other penalties being imposed.
