Caution, the below information is very dry, though lawyers, accountants, auditors, and government regulators may find it extremely fascinating (or not). It may be confusing to many people. It most likely is not of much interest to most people. Reading this page may cause sleepiness. Do not read while driving, or when working at heights. Proceed with extreme caution, and have a soft pillow on hand!

Income Tax & Annual Administrative Company Returns

WRS Web Solutions Inc. is resident in the Province of Ontario, Canada. It submits a T2 Tax Return annually to the Government of Canada, as represented by The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), as well as an administrative annual return to Corporations Canada, who in turn provide a copy of the information to The Companies Branch, Province of Ontario. (CRA is Canada's equivilent to the IRS in the USA.) Canada and the USA also have a tax treaty, the details of which we will not bore you with. WRS Web Solutions Inc. has filed the US Department of the Treasury - Internal Revenue Service form W-8BEN-E. The company also files sales tax returns (on sales to Canadian residents) to CRA and with the Canadian Provinces of BC, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, & Quebec.

USA

As the government regulated business model that we use for the reselling of home internet plans in Canada, does not yet appear to exist in the USA (and likely never will), our USA focus is mostly on attempting to earn affiliate marketing income by helping USA residents connect with the best internet service provider, etc, in their area. We also have other websites, including one which offers web hosting services. (We are open to hearing from internet service providers in the USA, and perhaps elsewhere, if you would like to have us as an affiliate, please use the contact form.)
