Keeping a bargain a bargain

David A. Altro’s “Keeping a Bargain a Bargain” was published in the January/February 2010 edition of CAmagazine. We invite you to read below as David constructs a case study exploring the complexities of purchasing a property in the U.S. during today’s unique economic situation. See how in David's scenario, several key factors (i.e., a strong Canadian dollar and a depressed real estate market) favour U.S. real estate purchases by Canadians. Oriented towards Chartered Accountants, the article provides an in-depth analysis of the cross border tax and estate planning implications of this kind of transaction.
