NR73- Canada revenue agency form

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi people!

I'm currently filling the determination of residency form for the canada revenue agency and I have some questions.

-Is it the only form I need to fill to declare i'm leaving the country?

- They are asking if i'm gonna keep a valid canadian passport. This is permitted right?

- They are also asking about bank accounts and REER. Is it legal to keep my money in Canada for a while?

I don't think I can withdraw my REER and I need to keep my bank account for my credit card because I still have some payment to do. It's also a really bad timing to transfer the money considering how bad the exchange rate is. Am i committing a fraud by doing this?

-I read on some VJ threads form 2008 to not fill this form unless ask by CRA, is it true?

A very lost canadian here!

I called up Revenue Canada back in 2004 and asked if 1 HAD to fill out that form.....and they said NOPE!! When u complete ur Cdn taxes, (and assumingly u have ,moved to the USA) on the very front of the page, it asks when you became, or when you CEASED to be a Canadian resident.....thats import!

You are allowed to keep ur Canadian passport, as you are still and always be a Canadian citizen........citizen and being a resident are 2 different things


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1
