Hi Forexcranium,

Thanks vm for your post. Just wondering if there is any Canadian specific site that I could check?



There is a thread on Canadian tax issues somewhere in here. Just do a search on “taxes” or something similar and you should be able to find it.


Dido, tax info would be great!!

See my post above.
