Hi Fellow Retirees,
One new thing my accountant at Deloitte told me to do when she talked to me
about my U.S. tax filing is to close down my tax-free savings account here
in Canada. While it is tax-free here, the U.S. is generally taking these
accounts to be something called "trusts" and apparently they are taxed at
some huge rate. My accountant said the safest thing to do is to simply put
the money in a regular savings account.
The U.S. is going after citizens living abroad simply to collect money
because of the massive U.S. deficit.
