I have Canadian PR and I am planning to go to Canada and apply for SIN and get back to USA. I am working in USA on H1B visa. When I get SIN number should I pay tax to Canadian Government?

Experts like PMM please advise

Only if you earn money/interest in Canada do you pay taxes. If you are returning to the US you are probably not considered a resident for tax purposes.

Thanks PMM. Even though I am an Indian citizen working in USA, can I apply for SIN number in Canada and return to USA? My wife and I are planning to immigrate to Canada in the next year or so. I need the SIN number because most recruiters want one even before they consider for interview.

Yes, but HRSDC will not mail it out of Canada.

Thanks PMM once again. I will be giving my friends address in Canada who is a permanent resident and lives with his family. Is it considered legal to give his adress to get SIN?

We are leaving to Canada in 3 days. Please advise!
