    Things to consider about owning U.S. property

    Credit to: Tax News : Things to consider about owning U.S. property

    (Special) – Winter brings with it the dream of many Canadian snowbirds of owning a piece of property in the sunny south. With the recent rebound in the U.S. housing market and a decline in the value of the Canadian dollar, however, buying vacation property south of the border may not be quite as appealing as it was a couple of years ago.

    “If you are just looking for a property deal you are probably too late as the housing market has already rebounded and the Canadian dollar has dropped against the U.S. greenback,” says Cleo Hamel, a senior tax specialist with American Expat Taxes. “Before you begin you should ask yourself some important questions, because how you answer them could well determine whether this is the right decision for you.”
    Whether you are interested in purchasing property in the U.S. as a vacation home or strictly as an investment, there are many things to consider - property management if you are to be an absentee landlord, residency rules, differences in mortgage financing and how interest is charged, income tax implications, estate tax implications, and the list goes on.
    This is not as simple as buying a property and making decorating decisions.

    If you want to prevent yourself and your business firms from getting an IRS interest, penalties or even potential criminal action such as jail terms, it is a good idea that you would hire professional people on tax representation. It must be someone who can handle your case excellently. Tax Lawyers can help you with these. They have a very wide knowledge and comprehension of the tax code that is changing and more complex...They can help you identify with yourself in your obligation related issues from the IRS.

    As for me, it's still best to ask an expert regarding this matter. And make sure that the expert you choose is reliable. Ask all questions you need to ask so everything would be clear to you.
    If you feel alone, talk to yourself…it's then that you realize there is someone listening to you. As for me, I check this out.
