Selling Your U.S. Property: Is there U.S. & Canadian Capital Gains Tax?

When a Canadian resident (non-citizen of the US) sells their vacation property in Florida, any capital gain realized is subject to US tax (and withholding) but is also subject to Canadian tax. The US tax rates applicable to “long term capital gain” (gain on capital property owned for more than 12 months) are generally 15% or 20% (there are technically 3 tax brackets on capital gains for this purpose: 0% on capital gains for single taxpayers with taxable income less than $39,376; 15% for single filers with taxable income less than $434,551 and 20% for single filers with taxable income of $434,551 or more). There is no Florida income tax on individuals.
