Hails from Canada
Canadian artists selling in the US?

Hi all,
I'm looking to pick the brains of any Canadian artists selling in the US. I was approached by a gallery in the US who wants to represent me so now I need to find out about how I am supposed to deal with the taxes and what not of selling in the US. If there is anyone out there who can help me, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Re: Canadian artists selling in the US?

I haven't transported art or sold art between Canada and the US, but in my other life I have delt with a lot of equipment and equipment parts.

I would speculate that you should first make a call to a customs broker and talk with them. I do know that when even ordering replacement parts or equipment componets, I would have to specify and retain a customs broker to be able to pick-up the package from the shipper. I suspect that will be the same for you and the gallery.

The money was easy, bank wire or certified checks.
