Another good article by the Elizabeth Thompson. It would appear that compliance with the “transition tax” is getting more and more difficult. The article begins with:
Thousands of Canadian residents hit hard by a retroactive tax signed into law by U.S. President Donald Trump have been dealt another blow, CBC News has learned.
Newly proposed regulations issued by the U.S. Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service threaten to increase their tax hit.
“You have to almost empty out your company and pay a lot of Canadian tax to avoid the U.S. tax,” said Kevyn Nightingale, a partner with the accounting firm MNP.
Interestingly, Ms. Thompson does reference the Solomon Yue American Chamber of Commerce meeting this Thursday August 16 in Toronto.
The comments seem less vicious today (at least so far).
