Customer Question

Hi. I'm a Cdn citizen working and living in Kenya 10 years. When I left Canada I owed money (~$2500). I tried a few times to file but it was always complicated. So I buried it all in the back of my mind, but now I want to deal with it. How should I proceed?

Hello

Your post is a little confusing as you say you left and owe but then you say you tried to file a few times.

If you filed and just did not pay then you can do that now by following the link below

If you truly never filed then you need to do that first. Then you can file a disclosure statement. The disclosure is made on form RC199. If CRA accepts your voluntary disclosure, you may only be charged the taxes owed plus the interest, with no penalties.
