The Irs Amendment Form Instructions

Irs amendment form instructions Publication 597 - Main Content Table of Contents Application of Treaty Personal Services Pensions, Annuities, Social Security, and AlimonyRoth IRAs. Irs amendment form instructions Tax-deferred plans. Irs amendment form instructions Investment Income From Canadian Sources Other Income Charitable ContributionsQualified charities. Irs amendment form instructions Income Tax Credits Competent Authority Assistance How To Get Tax HelpText of Treaty U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions 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. Irs amendment form instructions 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. Irs amendment form instructions 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. Irs amendment form instructions Saving clause. Irs amendment form instructions   In most instances, a treaty does not affect the right of a country to tax its own residents (including those who are U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions citizens) or of the United States to tax its residents or citizens (including U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions citizens who are residents of the foreign country). Irs amendment form instructions This provision is known as the “saving clause. Irs amendment form instructions ”   For example, an individual who is a U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions citizen and a resident of Canada may have dividend income from a U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions corporation. Irs amendment form instructions The treaty provides a maximum rate of 15% on dividends received by a resident of Canada from sources in the United States. Irs amendment form instructions Even though a resident of Canada, the individual is a U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions citizen and the saving clause overrides the treaty article that limits the U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions tax to 15%. Irs amendment form instructions    Exceptions to the saving clause can be found in Article XXIX, paragraph 3. Irs amendment form instructions Treaty-based position. Irs amendment form instructions   If you take the position that any U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions tax is overruled or otherwise reduced by a U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions 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. Irs amendment form instructions Personal Services A U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions 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. Irs amendment form instructions Income from employment (Article XV). Irs amendment form instructions   Income U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions 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. Irs amendment form instructions 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. Irs amendment form instructions    Whether there is a permanent establishment in Canada is determined by the rules set forth in Article V. Irs amendment form instructions Example. Irs amendment form instructions You are a U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions resident employed under an 8-month contract with a Canadian firm to install equipment in their Montreal plant. Irs amendment form instructions During the calendar year you were physically present in Canada for 179 days and were paid $16,500 (Canadian) for your services. Irs amendment form instructions 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. Irs amendment form instructions Pay received by a U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions 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. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions resident is exempt from Canadian tax. Irs amendment form instructions Income from self-employment (Article VII). Irs amendment form instructions   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. Irs amendment form instructions This income is treated as business profits, and deductions similar to those allowed under U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions law are allowable. Irs amendment form instructions   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. Irs amendment form instructions 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. Irs amendment form instructions   You may be considered to have a permanent establishment if you meet certain conditions. Irs amendment form instructions For more information, see Article V (Permanent Establishment) and Article VII (Business Profits). Irs amendment form instructions Public entertainers (Article XVI). Irs amendment form instructions   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. Irs amendment form instructions 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. Irs amendment form instructions Compensation paid by the U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions Government (Article XIX). Irs amendment form instructions   Wages, salaries, and similar income (other than pensions) paid to a U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions citizen by the United States or any of its agencies, instrumentalities, or political subdivisions for discharging governmental functions are exempt from Canadian income tax. Irs amendment form instructions   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. Irs amendment form instructions Students and apprentices (Article XX). Irs amendment form instructions   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. Irs amendment form instructions The recipient must be or must have been a U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions resident immediately before visiting Canada. Irs amendment form instructions   An apprentice or business trainee can claim this exemption only for a period of one year from the date the individual first arrived in Canada for the purpose of training. Irs amendment form instructions Pensions, Annuities, Social Security, and Alimony Under Article XVIII, pensions and annuities from Canadian sources paid to U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions 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). Irs amendment form instructions Canadian pensions and annuities paid to U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions residents may be taxed by the United States, but the amount of any pension included in income for U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions tax purposes may not be more than the amount that would be included in income in Canada if the recipient were a Canadian resident. Irs amendment form instructions Pensions. Irs amendment form instructions   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. Irs amendment form instructions It includes pensions paid by private employers and the government for services rendered. Irs amendment form instructions   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. Irs amendment form instructions   Pensions do not include social security benefits. Irs amendment form instructions Roth IRAs. Irs amendment form instructions   A distribution from a Roth IRA is exempt from Canadian tax to the extent it would be exempt from U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions tax if paid to a U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions resident. Irs amendment form instructions 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. Irs amendment form instructions However, you cannot defer tax on any accruals due to contributions made after you become a Canadian resident. Irs amendment form instructions Tax-deferred plans. Irs amendment form instructions   Generally, income that accrues in a Canadian RRSP or RRIF is subject to U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions tax, even if it is not distributed. Irs amendment form instructions However, a U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions citizen or resident can elect to defer U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions tax on income from the plan until the income is distributed. Irs amendment form instructions Form 8891 is used to make the election. Irs amendment form instructions Annuities. Irs amendment form instructions    An annuity is a stated sum payable periodically at stated times, during life, or during a specified number of years, under an obligation to make the payments in return for adequate and full consideration (other than services rendered). Irs amendment form instructions Annuities do not include: Non-periodic payments, or An annuity the cost of which was deductible for tax purposes. Irs amendment form instructions Special rules. Irs amendment form instructions    Special rules apply to pensions and annuities with respect to: Short-term assignments, Cross-border commuters, and Individuals who participate in a Canadian qualifying plan. Irs amendment form instructions Generally, distributions in such cases are deemed to be earned in the country in which the plan is established, without regard to where the services were rendered. Irs amendment form instructions Social security benefits. Irs amendment form instructions   U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions social security benefits paid to a resident of Canada are taxed in Canada as if they were benefits under the Canada Pension Plan, except that 15% of the amount of the benefit is exempt from Canadian tax. Irs amendment form instructions Alimony. Irs amendment form instructions   Alimony and similar amounts (including child support payments) from Canadian sources paid to U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions residents are exempt from Canadian tax. Irs amendment form instructions For purposes of U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions tax, these amounts are excluded from income to the same extent they would be excluded from income in Canada if the recipient was a Canadian resident. Irs amendment form instructions Investment Income From Canadian Sources The treaty provides beneficial treatment for certain items of Canadian source income that result from an investment of capital. Irs amendment form instructions Dividends (Article X). Irs amendment form instructions   For Canadian source dividends received by U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions residents, the Canadian income tax generally may not be more than 15%. Irs amendment form instructions   A 5% rate applies to intercorporate dividends paid from a subsidiary to a parent corporation owning at least 10% of the subsidiary's voting stock. Irs amendment form instructions However, a 10% rate applies if the payer of the dividend is a nonresident-owned Canadian investment corporation. Irs amendment form instructions   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. Irs amendment form instructions Interest (Article XI). Irs amendment form instructions   Generally, Canadian source interest received by U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions residents is exempt from Canadian income tax. Irs amendment form instructions   The exemption does not apply if the owner of the interest carries on, or has carried on, a business in Canada through a permanent establishment and the debt on which the income is paid is effectively connected with that permanent establishment. Irs amendment form instructions Gains from the sale of property (Article XIII). Irs amendment form instructions   Generally, gains from the sale of personal property by a U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions resident having no permanent establishment in Canada are exempt from Canadian income tax. Irs amendment form instructions However, the exemption from Canadian tax does not apply to gains realized by U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions residents on Canadian real property, and on personal property belonging to a permanent establishment in Canada. Irs amendment form instructions   If the property subject to Canadian tax is a capital asset and was owned by the U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions 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. Irs amendment form instructions Royalties (Article XII). Irs amendment form instructions   The following are exempt from Canadian tax: Copyright royalties and other like payments for the production or reproduction of any literary, dramatic, musical, or artistic work (other than payments for motion pictures and works on film, videotape, or other means of reproduction for use in connection with television, which may be taxed at 10%), Payments for the use of, or the right to use, computer software, Payments for the use of, or the right to use, any patent or any information concerning industrial, commercial, or scientific experience (but not within a rental or franchise agreement), and Payments for broadcasting as agreed to in an exchange of notes between the countries. Irs amendment form instructions   This rate or exemption does not apply if the owner of the royalties carries on, or has carried on, a business in Canada through a permanent establishment and the right or property on which the income is paid is effectively connected with that permanent establishment. Irs amendment form instructions   This exemption (or lower rate) does not apply to royalties to explore for or to exploit mineral deposits, timber, and other natural resources. Irs amendment form instructions Other Income Generally, Canadian source income that is not specifically mentioned in the treaty, may be taxed by Canada. Irs amendment form instructions Gambling losses. Irs amendment form instructions   Canadian residents may deduct gambling losses in the U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions against gambling winnings in the U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions in the same manner as a U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions resident. Irs amendment form instructions Charitable Contributions United States income tax return. Irs amendment form instructions   Under Article XXI, you may deduct contributions to certain qualified Canadian charitable organizations on your United States income tax return. Irs amendment form instructions Besides being subject to the overall limits applicable to all your charitable contributions under U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions tax law, your charitable contributions to Canadian organizations (other than contributions to a college or university at which you or a member of your family is or was enrolled) are subject to the U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions percentage limits on charitable contributions, applied to your Canadian source income. Irs amendment form instructions If your return does not include gross income from Canadian sources, charitable contributions to Canadian organizations are generally not deductible. Irs amendment form instructions Example. Irs amendment form instructions You are a U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions citizen living in Canada. Irs amendment form instructions You have both U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions and Canadian source income. Irs amendment form instructions During your tax year, you contribute to Canadian organizations that would qualify as charitable organizations under U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions tax law if they were U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions organizations. Irs amendment form instructions To figure the maximum amount of the contribution to Canadian organizations that you can deduct on your U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions income tax return, multiply your adjusted gross income from Canadian sources by the percentage limit that applies to contributions under U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions income tax law. Irs amendment form instructions Then include this amount on your return along with all your domestic charitable contributions, subject to the appropriate percentage limit required for contributions under U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions income tax law. Irs amendment form instructions The appropriate percentage limit for U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions tax purposes is applied to your total adjusted gross income from all sources. Irs amendment form instructions Qualified charities. Irs amendment form instructions   These Canadian organizations must meet the qualifications that a U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions charitable organization must meet under U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions tax law. Irs amendment form instructions Usually an organization will notify you if it qualifies. Irs amendment form instructions For further information on charitable contributions and the U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions percentage limits, see Publication 526, Charitable Contributions. Irs amendment form instructions Canadian income tax return. Irs amendment form instructions   Under certain conditions, contributions to qualified U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions charitable organizations may also be claimed on your Canadian income tax return if you are a Canadian resident. Irs amendment form instructions Income Tax Credits The treaty contains a credit provision (Article XXIV) for the elimination of double taxation. Irs amendment form instructions 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. Irs amendment form instructions For detailed discussions of the U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions income tax treatment of tax paid to foreign countries, see Publication 514, Foreign Tax Credit for Individuals. Irs amendment form instructions See paragraphs (4) and (5) of Article XXIV for certain provisions that affect the computation of the credit allowed by the United States for Canadian income taxes paid by U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions citizens residing in Canada. Irs amendment form instructions Competent Authority Assistance Under Article XXVI, a U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions citizen or resident may request assistance from the U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions competent authority when the actions of Canada, the United States, or both, potentially result in double taxation or taxation contrary to the treaty. Irs amendment form instructions The U. Irs amendment form instructions S. Irs amendment form instructions competent authority may then consult with the Canadian competent authority to determine if the double taxation or denial of treaty benefits in question can be avoided. Irs amendment form instructions If the competent authorities are not able to reach agreement in a case, binding arbitration proceedings may apply. Irs amendment form instructions It is important that your request for competent authority assistance be made as soon as you have been notified by either Canada or the United States of proposed adjustments that would result in denial of treaty benefits or in double taxation. Irs amendment form instructions This is so that implementation of any agreement reached by the competent authorities is not barred by administrative, legal, or procedural barriers. Irs amendment form instructions For information that you should include with your request for competent authority assistance, see Revenue Procedure 2006-54, 2006-49 IRB 1035, available at www.
