Also, if you stay there for certain time (two years, but not sure) and own the car for that long, you can bring it back in tax free.
I did ED through a dealer in NJ and just used my CAD passport and CAD license. I actually haven't heard of being able to import a US vehicle into canada tax free even if you've lived there after a few years. Would you happen to have a link to this info? because I didn't see any info on this on the RIV site.
