It says that to qualify for home-sharing, you need to show an ID (I'd use my Canadian passport) but also then 2 things from a list of stuff like California voter card (i dont have that), paycheque (i don't work in USA), etc.
I meet one of the requirements "A copy of a current property tax bill indicating homeowner’s exemption" so that is cool
But it seems I need one more. I'm wondering how strict it is, cause it's my primary residence in USA (ie. I dont have another property in LA), I just go back to Canada after the winter.
If you’re a Canadian, you can’t stay in the country without a visa (extended time period) and you can’t get a job without an immigration visa, BUT you are entitled to passive income. This is what kept me afloat in grad school. You need to declare this income and file a US tax return. As well, you need to file on with Revenue Canada. The answer to your question is YES, but be sure to pay your taxes.
