Buying in the U.S. | HomeBuyer

Many Canadians own U.S. recreational property near border states. Retired Canadians who are seasonal residents of the U.S., or “Snowbirds” frequently own property in the U.S.

If either of the above situations applies to you, you may be renting out your U.S. property on a part-time or full-time basis when you are not using it. If so, you are considered a “non-resident alien” by the IRS (the U.S. Internal Revenue Service) and you are subject to U.S. income tax on the rental income.
