Review

"A good resource for financial planning advice on cross-border issues."  —Saskatoon StarPhoenix



"For a closer look at U.S. Tax and financial-planning nuances and seasonal-residency and red-tape issues, pick up the book."  —Boston Herald



"Current enough to refer to the Loonie nearing parity with the Greenback and includes tips on road food for your clients who don’t like to fly."  —Advisor's Edge



"Ritchie’s book should be required reading."  —Kerby News



"Will definitely appeal to that segment of the Canadian population that travels south regularly. If you are among those people, consider The Canadian Snowbird in America to be required reading."  —Scene Magazine

Format: Paperback
I am planning my first Snowbird Vacation. This book was recommended to me by a friend who went to Florida this past winter. She said it will answer everything you need to know. She certainly was right! It was written in a way that the average person can understand. You don't need to be a 'financial' type person to get the most from this book. I highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
Buying U.S. real estate is hazardous for Canadians novice in the field.This book provides indispensable information regarding tax consequences,how couples should take title, estate implications, banking strategies, and mandatory forms necessary for opening a U.S. bank account and obtaining a U.S. ITIN (analogous to our social insurance number). Not only is this book a vital resource that is well researched, practical and helpful, but Terry Ritchie, himself, is also most accommodating, available and approachable when called upon to clarify any suggestions, ideas or processes detailed in this outstanding guide. We are presently assessing the viability of purchasing a U.S. property and between this book and the author himself we believe we are saving ourselves, time, money, mistakes and headaches. This book is a must have for any Snowbird contemplating living and investing in the United States!

this book is an absolute necessity for anyone planning to spend some time in the u.s. - it is thorough, concise and extremely detailed - terry ritchie and brian wruk have written a brilliant book which clearly outlines a number of issues the average canadian would not be aware of, but should be - "the canadian snowbird in america" is a hugely valuable source of information

Excellent resource for Canadians buying US real estate May 17 2010
By Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Very comprehensive treatment of the many differences in tax rules between Canada and the US. Very clearly written, easy to understand and well laid out. Seems to cover all the bases and in ways that a non-tax attorney can understand! Required reading for any Canadians considering a US real estate purchase. Highly recommended - these guys really know their stuff!

Canadian Snowbird Jan. 3 2013
By Peter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very informative. Every Canadian citizen (whether they want to or not) needs to be understand the consequences of visiting (regularly) the US. This is a good place to start and complements Border Guide.

The Canadian Snowbird in America is extremely well done. The book is easy to navigate through and is loaded with information including tax and estate planning considerations, general risk management, as well as outlines of the differences between the two countries and tips in handling them.
