Preparing & Filing IRS Tax Returns for US Expats
If you’re a US citizen or “US person” (Canadian or other citizen with US status such as a Green Card) living in Canada, you must remain in compliance with all US tax laws and regulations. This means that you must file a US personal income tax return every year. Even though Canada and the United States have a tax treaty, one which allows most income to be taxable in the country of residence (i.e. Canada) and not to be double taxed, it’s important to keep filing US personal income tax returns with the IRS. Whether you have no US tax burden or you have taxable income in the US, full compliance is key.
At Smith & West we have Ottawa-based US personal income tax experts on our team of chartered professional accountants. We prepare tax returns for many US expats in Canada each year, as well as Canadian citizens who still have status in the US that requires tax filing.

Your Team of US Tax Professionals in Canada
US tax code is a highly complex and challenging field. It applies to all US citizens living in and outside of the US, as well as to people in other countries holding Green Cards and other status (even to many who have renounced US citizenship). The long arm of the IRS certainly extends to Canada, and it can catch up with people when they attempt to enter the US with unresolved tax issues such as unpaid taxes, not having filed taxes annually, improper documentation and other outstanding tax matters.
