I don't know the law in Azerbaijan but from a Canadian point of view that makes no sense at all.
In any event, I assume you have to file some sort of Tax Return there.
When you do you will be able to prove from the assessment provided by the government what taxes you paid and that is what you can provide the CRA to obtain your foreign tax credit.
They do not need a tax certificate from your employer.
I understood that to be the issue.
And what I've said is that even though they paid your taxes you have to file a tax return with the government there and then the government there will send you documentation and you use that documentation for the CRA.And you may still have to pay Canadian taxes. You get a tax credit for what you paid overseas but if the tax paid is not as high as the tax you have to pay in Canada then you are going to have to pay the difference here.
