US CANADA Canadian working in Afghanistan for American Company -Judge Teskey Tax - Imputed Tax - Cross Border dual country tax o

 

My Question - 

I am taking a job in Afghanistan for 1 year for an American corporation.  My wife and kids will be staying in Canada.

I will receive a base salary, danger pay, out of country pay, away from family pay, all in US funds.

I am required to handle all taxes (as required) I can have my pay deposited anywhere in the world.

Is all of the pay I receive subject to tax? If so is there anyway to avoid taxes? Do you have to report all income or are some of the benefits tax free? Is there any way to handle the funds legally speaking of course...

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I spoke with you via telephone Friday night. I’d like to know how we could benefit from using your services. I found your name online and have not been referred to you by anyone. So I am not too aware of the services you offer.

We are looking at  investing in Real Estate in the US for approx the next 2 years. We would like to go back and forth and not have a restriction on how long we can do business there in a year. We would need to be there longer than 6 months of the year.

Please send me any information so we could better understand the service you offer.

Hi David,

I read your article on line (http://tax.centa.com/article.php/2007110502054856), and while I am not there now, I would like advice, as I have just lost my main income stream (self-employed), have no assets and a CCRA tax bill owing.

Referrals to a tax and bankruptcy lawyer would be very helpful.

Thank you.

Mr Ingram,

I'm interested in hiring you to file our taxes in both the US and Canada for 2009.  Please give me an estimate and let me know if you require a retainer fee up front.

Here are the details regarding our situation:
- My wife and I moved to Arizona from Vancouver in February 2009.  I have a TN Visa (3 year), Wife on TD Visa.
- We own (mortgaged) a townhouse which remains vacant, but we do not plan to sell.  We will consider if you suggest significant tax savings, but we would like to keep it as a vacation home for now. Currently money gets transferred from my US bank to Canadian bank to pay the mortgage and utilities.
- We own (mortgaged) a condo which is rented out: located in Vancouver
- My Wife has a First Time Home Buyer loan from her RRSP that she still needs to pay back, she has very little income in 2009 and probably no income in 2010.

- Our combined RRSP accounts have ~$80k, plus we have another $10k in TFSA, I also have a company 401k.
- I have my Arizona Drivers Licence and my wife is in the process of obtaining one
- We are planning to rent while we are located in Arizona..

Let me know if you have any other questions or suggestions.  After reading through your very informative site, I wonder if we were supposed to cancel our BC Health Insurance.  I'm not sure if that's required or what the process is.

My_question_is: Canadian-specific  question: I'm a Canadian citizen who is currently working in Asia.  
I've been a non-resident of Canada for several years.  
In order to qualify as a non-resident of Canada, I have to ensure that I don't have 
too many ties to Canada. Now, if I was to use a Canadian Web hosting company for
my overseas business, would this be considered a tie to Canada?
