Is unwritten employment considered legal?

I need to reference a Canadian court case where an unwritten employment is considered legal. I am a 100% shareholder and employed by my corporation. I claimed employment expenses based on a T2200. The CRA states that the T2200 is invalid since I do not have an employment contract with my company. The T2200 was issued and signed by my accountant who is a vendor.

I am a Canadian, working in the US, under US payroll, on O-1 visa. I filed in Canada and US and now I owe taxes in both countries. 2015 was my first year working as US employee (transferred from Canadian employee to US in Feb/ March 2015 so only had a couple months of Canadian income that year). This is my first time filing in the US. Is it right that I owe tax in both US AND Canada?

We own a ; we occupy the downstairs and there are 2

We own a triplex; we occupy the downstairs and there are 2 apartments upstairs. In 2015 we paid for repairs caused by water damage in an upstairs apartment. While at it, we had the entire apartment repainted. Several months after the work was done we claimed for those damages from our insurance company, and received a portion of the total cost. Can we claim all of these expenses, and if so, do we have to report the insurance money?

My Saskatchewan, Canada farm land was foreclosed on me by the

My Saskatchewan, Canada farm land was foreclosed on me by the bank in the late 1980's. I used $450,000 Capital Gains Exemption at that time. Because of "right of first refusal", I was able to repurchase some of my land at approximately $200./acre. I did not transfer this land from the bank to me, but I have the transfer documents to do this at any time! Now, I want to sell this land for $950,000. $950,000 - $450,000 = $500,000 I can still use in the capital gains exemption leaving $450,000 to pay income tax on $225,000.Since I have not transfered this land in my name, can I transfer some of this land from the bank into my wife of three years's name instead of mine, to let her use $450,000 as Capital gains exemtion? Do you only deal with Americans or do you help Canadians also?
