Hi, Is anyone able to explain to me how the tax for a foreign ETF (eg. DBXEU) in your TFSA account works.
I thought the taxes should not matter but it gets treated differently for foreign ETFs. Anyone have a link or info where I can read about it?
The taxes are foreign tax. Local tax is not deducted in a TFIA but you still have to pay foreign tax. You can read an article written by @SimonPB on the tax-fee matter. Pay attention to the second-last paragraph: http://www.fin24.com/Finweek/Investment/no-the-etf-owners-are-not-ripping-you-off-20170803
