Re: Non Resident Tax Question

Yes, I did and my apologies for all the questions, just a little nervous with everything!

Re: Non Resident Tax Question

If I simply send a letter to CRA stating my date of departure would that be enough? Is it too late to do my 2016 taxes to MRQ? Again my apologies for these questions, as you have been very helpful to me. I agree with you, my cpa did do lots of mistakes and he was not very communicative with me - I t...

Re: Non Resident Tax Question

[quote=nelsona post_id=516337 time=1611164893 user_id=30] At his point, there is nothing that really needs to be done. You are not cheating the system now, and 2013 is a long time ago. I am not a working cpa, as my signature indicates, [/quote] If I include a date of departure to CRA this means a re...

Re: Non Resident Tax Question

My accountant said, there is nothing else to do, you declared non resident in 2016 and I am not receiving any benefits and I have nothing to claim or declare because I have no income. So I'm not too sure as to revise an old return only once I can save for it.
I appreciate your help.

Re: Non Resident Tax Question

[quote=nelsona post_id=459837 time=1608304432 user_id=30] They don't, but when you revise an old return to tell them that you were non-resident way back then, they will dig a little deeper, by having you fill out a form on which you have to tell the truth about when you left, and likely have to retu...

Re: Non Resident Tax Question

What is the best thing to do? and you are then telling me that CRA does verify with customs on the exact left that you let, right?

Thank you for your honesty.
