Altro & Associates, LLP.Montreal, QC, Canada – November 18, 2009 — Altro & Associates, LLP is pleased to announce the release of the book Owning U.S. Property – The Canadian Way by David A. Altro, U.S. attorney and Canadian legal counsel. Mr. Altro is a leading practitioner in cross border real estate, tax and estate planning. Mr. Altro is a frequent speaker at seminars for financial institutions, wealth planning firms and tax conferences. As well, he hosts the lively radio show “Dollars and Sense” on Montreal’s leading AM radio station CJAD. For decades, Canadians have been seeking refuge from the harsh Canadian winters by heading south to the sunny skies and sandy beaches of Florida, Arizona, California and the other sunbelt states. Buying and owning U.S. property for a Canadian resident can be confusing, stressful and filled with uncertainty. Owning U.S Property – The Canadian Way provides answers to tax, estate planning and real estate issues on both sides of the border.

Owning U.S. Property – The Canadian Way addresses issues that may be affecting you or your clients, such as:

  • Buying U.S. real estate
  • Selling U.S. real estate
  • Probate and incapacity planning
  • Ownership options for U.S. real estate
  • Inheriting U.S. assets
  • Moving to the U.S.
  • Investing in U.S. real estate
  • Financing U.S. property
  • Estate and tax planning
  • Children living in the U.S.

Mr. Altro offers his book on a complimentary basis, waiving the purchase price and in lieu thereof requests a donation be made to the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre. The Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre educates people of all ages and backgrounds about the Holocaust, while sensitizing the public to the universal perils of anti-Semitism, racism, hate and indifference. Through its Museum, its commemorative programs and educational initiatives, the Centre promotes respect for diversity and the sanctity of human life.
