Life and Money Changes in One Small Century

The year is 1912 over one hundred years ago. What a difference a century makes! Here are some statistics for the Year 1912:

Self Employment and Canada

Today TaxMama® hears from Tony in the TaxQuips Forum with this question. “I have a friend / client who had self employment income in both US and Canada. He has already filed in Canada and is asking me to use the same income amount declared there, here in the US. He now owes the Canadian […]

Filing in Canada

Today TaxMama hears from Todd in the TaxQuips Forum who is unsure. “I have a client who is a U.S. citizen, but has Canadian income.

Bahamas Inheritance

Today TaxMama hears from Joe in the TaxQuips Forum, with this odd tale. “My cousin’s wife whose [missing word] was born in Canada and is also a U.S. citizen will be receiving about $150,000 inheritance from her father’s estate.

Ask TaxMama Issue 564 – Lucky 13

Dear Family, Welcome to Friday the 13th. The days dawns bright and sunny. The squirrels are still quietly asleep before their busy day of frolicking  on their trellis jungle jim and spitting out walnut seed pieces on my car. The birds are twittering quietly, still asleep. Soon, they’ll be up chattering passionately about their latest […]

Ask TaxMama Issue 563 – Good Choices

Dear Family, Today’s theme was not planned. By coincindence, the very first two stories I researched this morning are about Orthodox Jewish experiences.
