    Taxes for H1b Holder in USA with Canadian PR

    I live in Canada on PR but work for a US employer on H1B. I travel for work to US once a month. Last year it was less than 180 days. How should I file the US taxes - As a Resident or Non-resident of US? Also, My W2 and LCA shows US address. Not sure if that causes any issue! Could someone please...

    New Canadian PR and Nexus Card (Indian citizen with H1B)

    Hi, I recently got my Nexus but on activation I got the message 'Its active when entering the United States at a land border'. Does that mean I can't use it at the airports? Iris scan was done during the Nexus Interview. Also, Is there a way to check if I got TSA Precheck ? Thanks!

    New Canadian PR and Nexus Card (Indian citizen with H1B)

    Any idea what kind of questions do they ask in the interview? Do I need any client letter or letter from employer as document proof?

    New Canadian PR and Nexus Card (Indian citizen with H1B)

    Hi, I'm living in Canada on PR and travel once a month to US on H1B. Is it worth getting a Nexus? I moved to Canada 6 months ago and have lived in US for almost 4 years. Also, Did you go for interview to get Nexus or was it just an online application ? Thanks!

    If we file a petition to work for 40 hrs per month in US, we can still work remotely for 3 weeks from Canada, right?

    As long as you have valid reason to travel, I dont think they have issues. If the type of visa justify your travel, you should be good.

    Its different everytime. Sometimes if its busy at the border, they’ll ask just 2 questions- Country of citizenship and where are you headed? Other times, they ask more questions. Its always better not to lie at border. Just tell them if its hotel or rental accomodation or at friends place...

    What should we do with the US health insurance? Does it make sense to get the insurance from US employer even though we have insurance in Canada? Considering once a month travel. Does the Medical insurance charges still occur even if we deny the employer insurance ?

    Does it really matter how I'm crossing the border? I know lot of people cross border by road from Toronto -Buffalo. Is it fine if we fly every other week from Toronto to work location? Do we have to face lot of questions at the airport immigration? Appreciate your feedback! Thanks
