I Am a Canadian Resident

If you are a Canadian resident, you can choose one property for any particular year as your principal residence, even one located in the US for tax purposes. As well, you can gift any amount of cash to an individual without tax consequences if used for personal use. If funds are used for investment purposes, income type is attributed back to the transferor.

I Am a United States Citizen

If you are a US citizen, a $250,000 US for a single person or $500,000 US per couple exclusion from income is given on the sale of a principal residence. You must have used the home in the preceding five year period with at least two years as a principal residence.

Investing Your US Funds


If you are using US funds for investment purposes, the income type is attributed back to the transferor. However, if you are considered a US resident, you can only gift $18,000 US (2024) for an individual or $36,000 US per couple for tax purposes. There is an unlimited exclusion for tuition and medical expenses.

What Are Situs Assets?

All assets located in the US are considered “situs”. Therefore, real estate owned by a Canadian corporation will not be exempt from US estate tax. Investments held inside a Canadian corporation (other than real estate) will not be subject to US estate tax.
