Q: Back on 1/20/2024, you thought that these companies (partnerships) would not have withholding tax in the states. I've since received communication from my broker that I have to arrange for a U.S. Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN). They didn't indicate which holdings, but I do own these two companies. Has the company updated their advice? Thanks.

Q: 9:51 AM 1/20/2024
Does the US newly instituted tax rule on limited partnerships doing any business in the US now apply to BEP.UN, BIP.UN. BEPC, BIPC?
I have owned these for many years and all have very large capital gains in cash accounts so I am reluctant to sell them due to the crippling 10% 'disposition' tax on top of the big capital gain were I to sell. It seems I am caught in a tax trap! I would appreciate any advice on which ones are vulnerable to the tax and what to do.
Regards............ Paul W. K.

Q: Thinkinf of swaping out Sunlife now in a hopefully falling rate environment for a stock with more overall growth potential, but still a dividend over 4%. Please provide a few names for a dividend focused retirement portfolio that also bring strong overall return potential. Or, thoughts on whether Sun Life is still a stock to own in this situation.
