Filing Income Tax in Canada

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, its been a while! I have a tax question for all my fellow Canadians. This post will probably need to get moved but its been so long since I've been on here that I can't even remember where to go! LOL Anyways, I called Revenue Canada three times, two times I got different answers and the third time I got, "Someone will call you back",...and no one has. I moved in September of 2009, and filed a Canadian return in January 0f 2010. Now do I need to file this year? I had EI payments as well as my Workers Comp Pension payments. When I called the first time it was, no they already allott the income tax from your EI and Workers Comp is not taxable. I did work part-time here as well and reported all my income while on EI. He told me I did not need to file a return with them. I called again just to be sure and was told, NO NO NO you need to file as you had income. Now I am just totally confused about the whole thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

This should be in the Canada regional section lol not the removal of conditions section.

CRA sucks big time! They are super confusing and each phone rep seems to give a different answer.

I don't know if you need to file Canadian if you have already filled your exit tax return. But you do need to claim your EI on your American return.

Canada takes a 25% non-resident tax, you do not have to file.

However, if your total worldwide income would put you in a tax bracket less than the 25%, you can get a refund of the difference by filing a Section 217 return.

25% nonresident tax is your FINAL tax obligation on your EI.

It sounds to me like you don't need to file in Canada.

Did you try calling H&R block?

They actually took 30% non-resident income tax off my UI cheques. I finally got a call back, and I do not need to file there. I took the name and number from the guy just in case it comes back to bit me in the butt at a later date. Thanks for all the help.
