I live in the United States and I owe Revenue Canada for outstanding taxes. Can they garnishee my pay cheque here in the United States?
Yes they can. The United States and Canada are parties to a Convention between Canada and the United States of America With Respect to Taxes on Income and on Capital. In that convention is a section relating to collection of taxes under Article XXVI A of the Convention. Both parties have agreed to assist each other in the collection of outstanding taxes to each.
