H r block tax service Income Tax Credits Competent Authority Assistance How To Get Tax HelpText of Treaty U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service Taxation Canadian Taxation Application of Treaty The benefits of the income tax treaty are generally provided on the basis of residence for income tax purposes. H r block tax service That is, a person who is recognized as a resident of the United States who has income from Canada, will often pay less income tax to Canada on that income than if no treaty was in effect. H r block tax service Article IV provides definitions of residents of Canada and the United States, and provides specific criteria for applying the treaty in cases where a taxpayer is considered by both countries to be a resident. H r block tax service Saving clause. H r block tax service   In most instances, a treaty does not affect the right of a country to tax its own residents (including those who are U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service citizens) or of the United States to tax its residents or citizens (including U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service citizens who are residents of the foreign country). H r block tax service This provision is known as the “saving clause. H r block tax service ”   For example, an individual who is a U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service citizen and a resident of Canada may have dividend income from a U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service corporation. H r block tax service The treaty provides a maximum rate of 15% on dividends received by a resident of Canada from sources in the United States. H r block tax service Even though a resident of Canada, the individual is a U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service citizen and the saving clause overrides the treaty article that limits the U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service tax to 15%. H r block tax service    Exceptions to the saving clause can be found in Article XXIX, paragraph 3. H r block tax service Treaty-based position. H r block tax service   If you take the position that any U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service tax is overruled or otherwise reduced by a U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service treaty (a treaty-based position), you generally must disclose that position on Form 8833, Treaty-Based Return Position Disclosure Under Section 6114 or 7701(b), and attach it to your return. H r block tax service Personal Services A U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service citizen or resident who is temporarily present in Canada during the tax year is exempt from Canadian income taxes on pay for services performed, or remittances received from the United States, if the citizen or resident qualifies under one of the treaty exemption provisions set out below. H r block tax service Income from employment (Article XV). H r block tax service   Income U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service residents receive for the performance of dependent personal services in Canada (except as public entertainers) is exempt from Canadian tax if it is not more than $10,000 in Canadian currency for the year. H r block tax service If it is more than $10,000 for the year, it is exempt only if: The residents are present in Canada for no more than 183 days in any 12-month period beginning or ending in the year concerned, and The income is not paid by, or on behalf of, a Canadian resident and is not borne by a permanent establishment in Canada. H r block tax service    Whether there is a permanent establishment in Canada is determined by the rules set forth in Article V. H r block tax service Example. H r block tax service You are a U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service resident employed under an 8-month contract with a Canadian firm to install equipment in their Montreal plant. H r block tax service During the calendar year you were physically present in Canada for 179 days and were paid $16,500 (Canadian) for your services. H r block tax service Although you were in Canada for not more than 183 days during the year, your income is not exempt from Canadian income tax because it was paid by a Canadian resident and was more than $10,000 (Canadian) for the year. H r block tax service Pay received by a U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service resident for work regularly done in more than one country as an employee on a ship, aircraft, motor vehicle, or train operated by a U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service resident is exempt from Canadian tax. H r block tax service Income from self-employment (Article VII). H r block tax service   Income from services performed (other than those performed as an employee) are taxed in Canada if they are attributable to a permanent establishment in Canada. H r block tax service This income is treated as business profits, and deductions similar to those allowed under U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service law are allowable. H r block tax service   If you carry on (or have carried on) business in both Canada and the United States, the business profits are attributable to each country based on the profits that the permanent establishment might be expected to make if it were a distinct and separate person engaged in the same or similar activities. H r block tax service The business profits attributable to the permanent establishment include only those profits derived from assets used, risks assumed, and activities performed by the permanent establishment. H r block tax service   You may be considered to have a permanent establishment if you meet certain conditions. H r block tax service For more information, see Article V (Permanent Establishment) and Article VII (Business Profits). H r block tax service Public entertainers (Article XVI). H r block tax service   The provisions under income from employment or income from self-employment do not apply to public entertainers (such as theater, motion picture, radio, or television artistes, musicians, or athletes) from the United States who receive more than $15,000 in gross receipts in Canadian currency, including reimbursed expenses, from their entertainment activities in Canada during the calendar year. H r block tax service However, this provision for public entertainers does not apply (and the other provisions will apply) to athletes participating in team sports in leagues with regularly scheduled games in both the United States and Canada. H r block tax service Compensation paid by the U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service Government (Article XIX). H r block tax service   Wages, salaries, and similar income (other than pensions) paid to a U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service citizen by the United States or any of its agencies, instrumentalities, or political subdivisions for discharging governmental functions are exempt from Canadian income tax. H r block tax service   The exemption does not apply to pay for services performed in connection with any trade or business carried on for profit by the United States, or any of its agencies, instrumentalities, or political subdivisions. H r block tax service Students and apprentices (Article XX). H r block tax service   A full-time student, apprentice, or business trainee who is in Canada to study or acquire business experience is exempt from Canadian income tax on remittances received from any source outside Canada for maintenance, education, or training.

H r block tax service Pensions, Annuities, Social Security, and Alimony Under Article XVIII, pensions and annuities from Canadian sources paid to U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service residents are subject to tax by Canada, but the tax is limited to 15% of the gross amount (if a periodic pension payment) or of the taxable amount (if an annuity). H r block tax service Canadian pensions and annuities paid to U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service residents may be taxed by the United States, but the amount of any pension included in income for U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service tax purposes may not be more than the amount that would be included in income in Canada if the recipient were a Canadian resident. H r block tax service Pensions. H r block tax service   A pension includes any payment under a pension or other retirement arrangement, Armed Forces retirement pay, war veterans pensions and allowances, and payments under a sickness, accident, or disability plan.

H r block tax service   Pensions also include payments from individual retirement arrangements (IRAs) in the United States, registered retirement savings plans (RRSPs) and registered retirement income funds (RRIFs) in Canada. H r block tax service   Pensions do not include social security benefits. H r block tax service Roth IRAs. H r block tax service   A distribution from a Roth IRA is exempt from Canadian tax to the extent it would be exempt from U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service tax if paid to a U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service resident. H r block tax service In addition, you may elect to defer any tax in Canada on income accrued within the Roth IRA but not distributed by the Roth IRA. H r block tax service However, you cannot defer tax on any accruals due to contributions made after you become a Canadian resident. H r block tax service Tax-deferred plans. H r block tax service   Generally, income that accrues in a Canadian RRSP or RRIF is subject to U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service tax, even if it is not distributed. H r block tax service However, a U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service citizen or resident can elect to defer U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service tax on income from the plan until the income is distributed. H r block tax service Form 8891 is used to make the election. H r block tax service Annuities.

H r block tax service Dividends (Article X). H r block tax service   For Canadian source dividends received by U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service residents, the Canadian income tax generally may not be more than 15%.

H r block tax service   These rates do not apply if the owner of the dividends carries on, or has carried on, a business in Canada through a permanent establishment and the holding on which the income is paid is effectively connected with that permanent establishment. H r block tax service Interest (Article XI). H r block tax service   Generally, Canadian source interest received by U. H r block tax service S.

H r block tax service However, the exemption from Canadian tax does not apply to gains realized by U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service residents on Canadian real property, and on personal property belonging to a permanent establishment in Canada. H r block tax service   If the property subject to Canadian tax is a capital asset and was owned by the U. H r block tax service S. H r block tax service resident on September 26, 1980, not as part of the business property of a permanent establishment in Canada, generally the taxable gain is limited to the appreciation after 1984.

H r block tax service S. H r block tax service percentage limits on charitable contributions, applied to your Canadian source income. H r block tax service If your return does not include gross income from Canadian sources, charitable contributions to Canadian organizations are generally not deductible.

H r block tax service In general, the United States and Canada both allow a credit against their income tax for the income tax paid to the other country on income from sources in that other country.
