hey folks I've been avoiding paperwork for a few years for a lot of reasons. Not the least of which is small children, needing a break and mostly avoidance. I've always planned to naturalize. My goal/intent has been to do the full process. That is still my goal. I've been eligible to naturalize for a few years now. I've even just about finished my online N400 and could submit pretty quickly. I've reached a standstill and would love to hear experiences from any Canadians who have dual citizenship, especially if you have lived in both countries. What are the tax implications (good and bad) of this? I understand there are things to consider around TFSAs and RESPs in Canada, and possibly other American investment vehicles... but i'm trying to research what it means and the impacts if we one day live in Canada again, as that has always remained on the table for my family. I have asked my tax accountant and it wasn't a very helpful email, he's very effective at his job but "teaching a layperson" isn't it. I did find out enough to research TFSAs and RESPs and Roth's and 529k's etc. Mostly what are your experiences -- I'm sure we have others in this form who are living in Canada or have lived in Canada as a canadian-american or dual-american couple. I've reached out to ask similar questions in a Canada site that is similar to this one in the hopes that I can learn from the experiences of others as I make some decisions. Informed decisions has always been a priority for decisions. thanks everyone!
