Message:
TFSA accounts are used by people for many different things other than saving for retirement (e.g. saving up to buy a car, or take a vacation, etc.)

The U.S. is very much aware of this fact.

Because of this, they do NOT, under any circumstance, recognize TFSAs as purely "retirement accounts". Thus, you will NOT be able to avoid tax withholding on U.S. stocks held within a TFSA trading account.
