This Global News video shows the sad story of of a Canadian who was subject to U.S. taxes. What is not clear in the video is the reason for the tax. It appears that this was a result of the U.S. Estate tax. Therefore, In infer that her late husband must have been a U.S. citizen.
Whatever the reason, this story is one more example of the pain and unfairness that takes place when U.S. citizens attempt to live outside the United States.
