question about taxes, dual citizenship, OHIP while in the US

Post Mon Jan 10, 2011 10:36 am

Hey guys!! I just received my greencard for permanent residency in the States. In three years I can apply for citizenship. With that being said, what's the rule for Canadians and dual citizenship? Do I have to pick one or the other or can I keep my Canadian status and be a US citizen too? BTW - I was born and raised in Ontario.

Second, this is my first year living in the States - I moved here in January 2010 for school and then married my USC sweetie a few months later. I imagine we will file our taxes joint here in the US but do I also have to file back home in Ontario? I do not have a T4 for 2010.

Last, I would like to continue seeing my doctors for yearly check ups, etc in Ontario. I still have my OHIP card and it doesn't expire for a few more years. May I continue using OHIP when I go home for visits? I still have a residence there with my parents. How does this all work? Do I need to contact the ministry of health?

Thanks for all of the advice!!!!
