Brilliant! @FinMusings explains how @USTransitionTax allows USA to collect tax on income that never would have resulted in U.S. tax payable! By changing timing and "frontrunning" USA creates a "fictional event" to tax CDN income before Canada can tax it! https://t.co/hnDu6x7y5K

This is the seventh in my series of posts about the Sec. 965 Transition Tax and whether/how it applies to the small business corporations owned by taxpaying residents of other countries (who may also have U.S. citizenship). These small business corporations are in no way “foreign”. They are certainly “local” to the resident of another country who just happens to have the misfortune of being a U.S. citizen.
