Estate Income Tax

The executor of the estate of a deceased person is responsible for filing tax returns on behalf of the deceased person and also on behalf of the estate.

When a person dies, there is a terminal return that must be filed. This is a final T1 individual income tax return that is filed for the year of death. Along with the income earned to the date of death, it also reports the deemed disposition of all assets of the deceased at the date of death. There are also elective returns that may be able to be filed to reduce the overall tax burden. In addition, a trust return may be required. A trust return reports income earned by the estate from the date of death of the individual until the time that the assets have been distributed. There may be one or more of these returns required depending on how long it takes to wind up the estate.

Tax Partners can help you by preparing the Final (T1) and Trust (T3) income tax returns together with any applicable schedules and submit it to the Canada Revenue Agency for processing.

US Income Tax

If you are a U.S. citizen living and working in Canada, you remain subject to the same filing requirements that you would be in the U.S. This means, as part of your U.S. tax preparation, you must file Form 1040 every year, reporting your worldwide income. This means that if you are a U.S. citizen resident in Canada, you must file two returns each year: a Canadian return (based on residence), and a U.S. return (based on citizenship). Fortunately, this does not necessarily mean that you'll have to pay taxes to both countries. There are several mechanisms available to help avoid double taxation, and Tax Partners' U.S. tax team is here to help!

Tax Partners can provide you with:

  • U.S. 1040 tax return preparation
  • U.S. 1040 NR tax return preparation
  • State tax return preparation
