So you 're looking at between $50K and $70K per year. It's enough to live comfortably on on, although not lavishly.

If you're paid through a Canadian company for work in Canada, you'll be on the hook for Canadian income taxes. Currently, US citizens are permitted to make in the area of $80K before being being required to also pay US taxes.
