US Estate Tax Calculator for Canadians

Click the above link to open the calculator in a new window.

Note:  best viewed in Chrome or Firefox.  If using IE, use compatibility view for the calculators to work properly.

A U.S. federal estate tax return must be filed if a deceased Canadian resident who is not an American citizen owned U.S.-situated assets (this includes stocks in US corporations, even if held in a Canadian brokerage) exceeding $60,000 fair market value in US$ at death, and they may be subject to US estate tax.  Whether or not US estate tax is payable will depend on the person's total worldwide estate.  This calculator is for a Canadian who is not a US citizen.

Our calculator is a very simple one - input the amount of your US-situated assets, and the amount of your worldwide estate, all in US$.  The results will show the gross taxes, unified credit, and net taxes that would be payable on this estate in years from 2011 to 2016.

Of course the actual completion of a US estate tax return would be more complicated than this, but our calculator will give you a rough idea of how much US estate tax, if any, you may be required to pay.

For more information on how this works, and what is included in US assets and your worldwide estate, see our article on US Estate Tax.

Tax Tip:  As with many tax-related issues, this is complicated - plan ahead and get professional advice if you may have over $60,000 US in US assets at death!
