Am I in trouble?

Ok, well needless to say that I'm VERY agitated right now and need your assistance VJ members!

I've never immigrated before (obviously) and this process did not come with a hand book of what to do once you move to the US. I just read a post, and I was to call CRA to let them know I moved? I contacted the Qc government in late December or early January in regards to my driver's license. I had to write them a letter telling them my new adress, blah blah blah. I was also going to put a letter in my tax return (I do it the old fashion paper way), but you're supposed to call?

How bad is it that I haven't yet? Is this going to get me denied at my AOS interview in two weeks??? :crying::crying::crying:

Gosh, this process is so stressful, I'm so tired of finding new things to stress out about! I'm terrified now that I've made a terrible mistake and don't know what to do! :help:

No, you're not in trouble! What you did or did not say to the Canadian government when you left is not going to have an impact on your AOS application. That would imply both countries have a way to logically communicate, and we both know that doesn't really happen.

When I left, I contacted CRA only because I wanted them to stop sending GST checks. Do you think they listened? No, they just kept sending them to my US address. Three calls later they finally figured it out.

When I filled my Canadian tax return, I just indicated the date I left the country, no letter or statement, and I don't think it was a problem. At least, I haven't received anything indicating that was a problem!

Other than that, I did not call anyone or do anything. I let my DL and Ontario health card just expire. Nobody has come after me about anything.

I think you'll be fine :)

I haven't "told" Canada either. Service Canada pays me out of country EI, which they know. You don't need to tell the country you are leaving, you just can't try to claim that you still live there and it's benefits when you go back to visit while claiming benefits in the US. As far as I know when you POE it goes on some records. Who gets this record I don't know.

I never told CRA save for the huge issue i had with thos idiots still sending me GST checks in Canada, they asked for my new address so they could mail me papers then started mailing the GST checks and pay back bills to my USA address. I hate thos people!

All you do is indicate you are filing your final "leaving Canada return" on your last canadian tax return by saying the date you left/became PR. thats it.

RELAX...BREATHE...BREATHE :)

Your American AOS interview is not going to be affected by CRA knowing (or not) that you've moved here...2 different governments girlfriend! You'll file your 2010 taxes, you'll tell them the day you left and that will be that. If you've been receiving GST or Child tax credit(if it applies to you) since you moved and are not entitled to them when not a Cdn resident, you will have to pay it back likely - it might take them a year to figure out (as in my case) but that's about it.

I can't remember if I told anyone. I don't even know what CRA and never even heard of it, so I would assume I never contacted them or anyone else about me moving. Think I just filed taxes still and that was it for that year. Been so long I can't remember, but I don't recall ever calling anyone up to say I'm no longer going to be in Canada ever again...


I'm just a wanderer in the desert winds...

I never said anything to anyone other than ontario to get refund for my 5 year licence i had just renewed. ohip is automatically cancelled, and i figured i'd be doing an exit return anyway. i've also heard your suposed to tell the CDN Gov't that when you get married as well. I never did that either lol.

course then again i'm pretty sure i wont go back to Canada unless my husband gets a job there or a transfer.
