Individual US tax filing (1040 and 1040NR)

File your individual income tax return with us and our team will take care in getting the maximum tax refund that you are eligible for or minimize your tax liability by claiming all tax treaty benefits, deductions, and exemptions that apply to you as a resident or non-resident in the United States. You are also responsible to file your return by the due date to minimize your late filing penalties, avoid a reminder from the IRS, maintain your status and benefits as well as provide your tax information and copy of tax returns where needed.

We will help you in determining your U.S. tax filing status which is important. It may also involve some tax planning and looking into the details of options that are available from IRS and CRA and the details of tax treaties signed between the United States and Canada.

Some of the common tax filing status that you may be eligible for includes US Residents, US Citizens, and Non-Resident Aliens, either filing separately, joint, or head of household.

Streamlined Filing Compliance Procedures

Past-due returns incur two types of penalties: failure to file and failure to pay. It is important to act as early as possible to begin settling any dues to the IRS. If you have unfiled US tax returns, you may be eligible to file those delinquent tax returns under the Streamlined Filing Compliance Procedures and you will not be subject to failure-to-file and failure-to-pay penalties. The U.S. taxpayer can avail streamlined filing compliance procedures by certifying that they did not willfully fail to report their foreign assets and fail to pay all taxes due in respect of those assets.

  • You meet the applicable non-residency requirement
  • You will File 3 years of delinquent Federal Tax Returns
  • You will report 6 years of FBARs
  • Sign the Form 14653 to certify tax delinquency was non-willful

If you are concerned that you fail to report income, fail to submit required information returns, and fail to pay taxes, that was due to willful conduct and you, therefore, want to seek assurance that you will not be subject to substantial monetary penalties and/or criminal liability, you should consider participating in the IRS Criminal Investigation Voluntary Disclosure Practice and should consult with us.
