In this episode of ‘Conversations on Wealth’, host Sarah Widmeyer speaks with Sean Hsu, Senior Tax Specialist at Richardson Wealth about Canadian snowbirds and their U.S. tax obligations. Sean shares that if you spend extended periods of time living in the United States, it’s important to keep track of your days there. That’s because over a certain number of days, you will be required to pay U.S. taxes, even if you’re not an American citizen. But there are several ways that you can overcome your deemed residency under what’s called the Substantial Presence Test.
