I am a dual U.S.-Canadian citizen, currently living and working in the U.S. I am looking to start investing for retirement, but have some questions about the tax implications of retiring in another country. Specifically, if I begin investing in a US IRA, but end up retiring in Canada, will I be taxed by both the U.S. and Canadian governments when I withdraw funds? How would I go about finding the answer to this question?

Thanks,
mark
