If you’re a Canadian resident and owned any “specified foreign property” costing more than $100,000 at any time during the year, you may need to file Form T1135 Foreign Income Verification Statement with your Canadian tax return.
Foreign property held in registered plans, such as registered retirement savings plans (RRSPs) or tax-free saving accounts (TFSAs), don’t have to be reported on Form T1135.
Funds held outside of Canada constitute specified foreign property for T1135 reporting. An account held at a Canadian branch of CIBC wouldn’t be a specified foreign property even if the account is a foreign currency denominated account. However, if you have a CIBC Bank USA Smart Account, this would be considered specified foreign property.
As noted on the CRA Website Opens in a new window., a Canadian mutual fund trust (as defined in the Income Tax Act) or mutual fund corporation wouldn’t be a specified foreign property even if the trust or corporation itself holds specified foreign property.
All exchange-traded funds and mutual funds managed by CIBC or CIBC Asset Management Inc. fall into this category as well.
To find out if a Foreign Property Report that provides information regarding your foreign securities to help you in completing the T1135 is available for your non-registered account, contact your advisor or call Client Relations at 1-800-563-3193 Opens your phone app.. A Foreign Property Report isn’t an official tax document; it’s your responsibility to complete the actual T1135.
Note: A Foreign Property Report will not reflect foreign assets held in accounts with other CIBC lines of business. For example, if you have a CIBC Bank USA Smart Account, this will not be captured on a Foreign Property Report for your Canadian non-registered account.
