If you have information about how FATCA will affect green card holders in your country, or a question about FATCA and your green card status, or an experience to share, please comment here.
The idea for this thread comes from News, who posted the following FAQ from Canada Revenue Agency’s website, regarding FATCA and Green Card Holders, as a comment on the “Terminating a Green Card” thread.
“I hold a U.S. green card. How does this affect my tax residency?
If you are a green card holder (that is, a lawful permanent resident of the U.S.), the U.S. considers you to be a U.S. resident.
However, if you are a resident of Canada for tax purposes and do not hold U.S. citizenship, you should not identify yourself as a U.S. person to your Canadian financial institution.”
