more on taxes

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here been collecting CPP, disability, etc and then continued collecting after immigrating to the US? I'm wondering what the tax implications of that are. ie, do you have to file both US and Canadian taxes every year and be taxed by both countries? Or how does that work?

Apologies if this has been discussed before. I did a few searches but came up empty. Maybe I'm not looking for the right terms.

Thanks mucho!

I am wondering that also, and how will it affect my K1 Visa App since I will still have a Canadian CPP income when I immigrate to the USA. I am assuming that additional income can only help? Or do they even look at that?

Probably better to ask here: http://forums.serbinski.com/viewforum.php?f=2&sid=3619c67a88cebf839c565d0479a78660


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1
