Common Cross Border Tax Surprises

This week, Brent and Rachel sit down with Shiraz Ahmed to talk about common cross border tax issues that may arise for Americans moving to Canada, and Canadians moving to the U.S. They discuss passive foreign investment companies, retirement accounts, and more. They also highlight how a basic estate plan in one country may be treated entirely different in the other.
