After reading some 100 of the 288 results from the search under non-resident, figured I'd just fire away my question. My apologies if it has been answered.

I understand capital gain are not taxed and cash dividends are taxed at 30%. I also understand from the message boards that for US taxpayers, margin interest can be set-off (upto $3,000?) from their income tax reporting.

Can margin interest ($31,000) be set-off from cash dividends ($3,000) for a non-resident.

Can capital losses ($10,000) be set-off from cash dividends for a non-resident?

Thanks in advance
