My wife and I are on an H1B and are about to send our passport next month to get the PR Visa but we don’t want to move to Canada immediately.
What are the implications of working in the US, on H1B, for 1 - 2 years, after the initial landing in Canada? My understanding is that if we move to Canada, 2 years after we get the PR, we would have to be in Canada for 730 days out of the next 3 years to maintain our PR. That seems to be doable, even with International travel during those 3 years. I have the following questions in this regard:
Would this affect our PR Renewal/ Canadian Citizenship in any way?
What are the tax implications of doing so? Specifically, is there any double taxation that would come to play?
If doing this is fine, any advice on how we should handle our 401k, ROTH IRA and Real estate investments in the US? Specifically, if anything should be done to these assets before landing, during landing and before moving permanently?
Also, does anyone here have personal experience doing this?
