Juridical double taxation refers to circumstances where a taxpayer is subject to tax on the same income (or capital) in more than one jurisdiction. For example, a resident of Canada who is also considered to be a resident of the United States would be potentially subject to concurrent full taxation in both countries. Bilateral tax treaties generally tend to eliminate (or at least reduce) the possibility of juridical double taxation.
