Podcast Episode 124: “Non-Resident Taxes Part II.”

Like all things tax related, non-resident tax is complicated when it comes to buying and selling real estate in Canada.

Lots of liability and dangerous situations here, folks, so don’t treat non-resident tax lightly. If you have a non-resident tax situation, please read the previous post (link), and then dive into the case study below.

Podcast Episode 123: “Creative Real Estate Investors Panel.”

Special one-hour dive into the trenches of Creative Real Estate in Canada… and Africa! Barry has gathered a panel of experts, veritable rockstars of Creative Strategies, to share their experiences and answer questions from the audience.
