Cross-Border Tax Issues for Canadians After US Tax Reform
Date: May 08, 2018
Speaker: Max Reed, LLB, BCL
Max solves US tax problems for Canadians, including:
- Advising corporations on the US tax implications of cross border transactions and initial public offerings;
- Helping US citizens in Canada deal with US tax issues, including renunciation;
- Developing estate and tax plans that work on both sides of the border; and
- Advising Canadian investment funds on investments into the US and receiving investments from US taxpayers.
Max is the co-author (with Dick Pound of Stikeman Elliot) of A Tax Guide for American Citizens in Canada, as well as over 20 technical and plain language articles on a wide range of cross-border tax topics. Recognized for his expertise, Max is often invited to speak at conferences and seminars for tax professionals and the general public. He was invited to testify before the Canadian House of Commons Finance Committee on the impact of US tax law on Canadians.
On December 22, 2017, the most sweeping changes to US tax law in 30 years were enacted. The legislation, known informally as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, was 500 pages long and contained many changes that are important to Canadians. Cross-border planning has entirely changed. Max will provide an overview of the changes and the implications for advisors in Canada.
