Change for Canadians?

Can't Post | Private Reply
FIL in Florida is telling me that due to a "change in the law" Canadians can no longer spend such a long time out of the country. As a consequence some/many? are selling their snow-bird manufactured homes (in his community).

Anyone know what this about.... assuming that something has actually changed?

They can stay 120 days in a 12 month period without filling an IRS 8044 form. If they stay over 120 days and up to the allowed 182 days per 12 month period they have to file one.

Nothing has changed. All one has to do is prove you have closer ties to Canada than the US. The above mentioned form satisfies the IRS. That has been the policy for many years.

The point is moot if you are snowbirding in Mexico.

Which point is moot? This whole discussion is about snowbirds. As an example: If you spend say 180 days every year in the USA you need to fill out that form or risk being denied entry. Not moot at all. Just being a snowbird does not satisfy the IRS.

Correction: "They can stay 120 days in a 12 month period without filling an IRS 8044 form."

This should read you can stay 120 days in 3 - 12 month periods without filling an IRS 8044 form.
