Simon,

Hang on here...

1 - You're not a US citizen
2 - You're not a US resident
3 - Your trades are done through a Canadian Broker

Why do you even think you need to pay US taxes? As I've never been in anything similar don't take this as advice, I'm just thoroughly confused.


If you derive income through investments in a country other than your own, that income is subject to taxation in the country of the investment because that's where the income is actually realized.

Norm.
