Hi all,

THis is my first post. Just started recently coming to the forum. I sure like what I am seeing so far. Keep up the good work.

I have a quick question for all of you out there. I just finished reading Josh Peters - The Ultimate Dividend Playbook and I believe that I am going to be devoloping a stragety that revolves around dividend paying stocks. Anyways when I was reading, he talked about the withholding taxes that you have to pay when you buy a stock from outside your home nation. (in his case the US) And he said that pretty much without exception every nation has a withholding tax. But at the end he said there was one country that doesn't have a withholding tax for the US based on some tax treaty anyone who invests from the States in a British based company that pays dividends doesn't have to pay a withholding tax from the UK.

So, my question is does anyone know if Canada has a similar tax treaty with different countries. I guess that this would also be outside of tax deffered holidngs as well. (RRSP's etc.)

Thanks,

Rocky

I know Canada does NOT have a tax treaty in place with France or Switzerland.

Your decision to buy dividend stocks was most probably influenced not only by the book but also by the incessant promotion of dividends in the media.

I am not against them, but I am against misrepresentations of the truth. Before you buy into the orthodoxy take some time (quite a lot) and go through the different points against dividends.

Leslie,

I have been doing a bunch of reading online, in books and elsewhere and I feel that this is the most relevant strategy that I want to use. I have read a couple of Gordon Pape's books, Peter Lynch's books and others. I believe that for me I will be pursuing this investment strategy. That being said I thank you for the link and I will have to check it out as all sides of a strategy need to be looked at to form a good decision.

Thanks,

Rocky
