It's in ontario canada

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

He was audited and revenue canada is watching the closing day

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

No they cannot and would not consider doing that. When there is jointly held property they CRA could only seize 1/2.

Does that fully answer your question?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
