FYI: the Canada tax issue is totally incorrect. The above references are out of context. They apply to Canadian citizen non residents. If you are resident in Canada, it matters not where your income comes from, you will always be taxed. If you are an Air China Capt living in Canada, flying abroad, you will be taxed at the normal rate. Around 45% for that income level. second if you are not a Canadian citizen, you are not permitted to live in Canada without a valid visa. These are all basic international work and tax laws. Where Canada differs from the US is only that a Canadian citizen working abroad and is a Non resident of Canada, they are no longer subject to tax on their international income. To be a non Res, you cannot have a home for your personal use in Canada, along with various other limitations. Moral: if you living there and using the services- you will pay tax. Period.
