Cross-Border Telecommuting???

Discussion in 'Canadian Finance and Taxation' started by links18, Jan 12, 2009.

  1. Anyone have any info on tax implications of telecommuting across the border? For example, a US citizen living in Canada, but who telecommutes for a US employer? Is that Canadian source income?
  2. Sorry, I'm of no help. But since I might be doing something similar, here's a bump. Hope somebody comes along who's had experience with this.

    I'd be working for a company in Slovenia, while living in Canada. NO clue how that would work though.

    EDIT: From the info I found, that is not income in Canada. But you still have to file it as income from abroad. I believe US and Canada have some sort of treaty that determines you don't have to pay taxes in both countries. From what I've found for my case, I'd have to pay taxes in Slovenia. Because our tax rate is much higher, I wouldn't have to pay any extra in Canada. I think.
  3. Thanks, I imagine the US is going to want to tax that income.
