A sophisticated portfolio solution with simplified tax reporting
U.S. taxpayers living and investing in Canada are likely familiar with the headaches associated with reporting income from a passive foreign investment company (PFIC) to the IRS.
PFIC reporting can be a time consuming, cumbersome and expensive process. If you hold multiple funds that are considered PFICs, these costs can add up quickly, as one U.S. tax form (Form 8621) must be filed for each individual investment.
