united against their tax payers by a single language.

just a small sample:

Convention between the United States of America and Canada with respect to Taxes on Income and on Capital, signed September 26, 1980

Article XVII
Withholding of Taxes in Respect of Independent Personal Services


1. Deduction and withholding of tax on account of the tax liability for a taxable year on remuneration paid to an individual who is a resident of a Contracting State (including an entertainer or athlete) in respect of the performance of independent personal services in the other Contracting State may be required by that other State, but with respect to the first five thousand dollars ($5,000) in the currency of that other State, paid as remuneration in that taxable year by each payer, such deduction and withholding shall not exceed 10 per cent of the payment.

2. Where the competent authority of a Contracting State considers that an amount that would otherwise be deducted or withhold from any amount paid or credited to an individual who is a resident of the other Contracting State in respect of the performance of independent personal services in the first-mentioned State is excessive in relation to the estimated tax liability for the taxable year of that individual in the first-mentioned State, it may determine that a lesser amount will be deducted or withheld.


the technical explanations come in a handy, 105 page pdf.  the technical explanations are not a whole lot easier to read than the text itself; they're just more wordy.

i want to secede.
