Any Canadian Travel nurses in USA?


I travelled for about 6 years between the late 80s and early 90s now find myself taking up the road again. Travel companies are no longer offering free lodging, but instead paying nurses a tax free weekly wage plus a taxed weekly wage in the USA. I'm keeping my apartment in Toronto and will be paying Canadian taxes since I plan on coming home for the summer. How does the tax free wage affect your Canadian taxes?

I'm a relatively healthy 60 year old male RN and thinking of travelling to the states every winter. An ultimate work/paid vacation for four months, what's not to like? I might like to visit Alaska and/or northern Canada in the summer.

Tax free stipends are a reimbursement of business related expenses, not wages. They are not reported to the IRS, nor should you claim them to Canada as reimbursements of expenses are not taxable there either.

Hello, I will travel nursing to Toronto soon and I need to rent a car. Do you know this company Toronto car rental: Cheap car rentals. Iversta - rent a car in Toronto Canada or maybe you used their service? It's convenient to me because I'll land in airport they located but I need opinion of locals. Thanks!
