Common Mistakes

    Confusing citizenship status with tax residency status
    When you are selling your property, we are most concerned about your tax residency status. This status means that you are and will continue to file and remit your taxes in Canada. For some Canadians working or living outside of Canada, if you are a Canadian citizen but you stop paying taxes in Canada, then you would be considered selling your property as a non resident. In such circumstance, our office is legally bound to withhold at least 25% of your sale purchase price until you have engage a tax accountant to help you obtain a Clearance Certificate.
