Discussion arising from Justice MacTavish’s Deegan v. Canada decision, but not specifically related to the case
To keep the main thread focused on Justice MacTavish’s Deegan v. Canada decision, I’ve started this thread for conversations that arise in our discussion of Justice MacTavish’s decision but move into other areas.
In Canada, generally speaking, a US birthplace does not make an account reportable under FATCA. Self-certifying as a US person does. Important difference.
As for the interests of the vulnerable being sacrificed for the banks – that surely is not Canada’s intention? The US can’t tax the Canadian income of a Canadian resident without help from either the taxpayer or Canada.
As it’s become difficult for me to guess what one is or isn’t allowed to say, I’m giving up trying.
Just want to say this – please! – in case anyone responds to any comment I’ve made and thinks they’re being ignored when they don’t see any response from me,
Thanks. I’m off.
