I am a US citizen living and working in the US.  I am considering =
purchasing a rental property in Vancouver, BC and wondered about the tax =
consequences--both in Canada and the US.  Would I need to pay taxes on =
the income in Canada or US? =20
Both - Canada first on a Section 216 return with an extra schedule T776 =
- If any taxes were paid to Canada, you would claim a credit on your US =
return by way7 of form 1116.  After convewrting the Canadian figures to =
US $$$, youy would have a small loss, not a profit.
Would I be able to deduct mortgage payments and condo fees and =
management company fees as a business expense?=20
You can deduct "mortgage INTEREST" and condo fees and management fees in =
Canada and the US.
If it was to be paid in Canada, would I only be taxed on the rental =
income--not my personal US salary income. =20
Canada would not have a claim on your US income unless you were in =
canada very ofteen on a continuos basis.
Thank you!

to the Canadian Income Tax Department every month.
Then by March 31st of the following year, your tax agent has to file =
form NR-4 and Summary to report the rental income to the CRA and you.

Then by June 30th, you have to file a Canadian Tax return under Section =
