Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
So you did receive the fund and this is all about what you may owe the CRA is that it?
No you don't. If the CRA says you never owed this money and they wrote off any tax owing then the Trust company did not pay the CRA for you.
So that is what you put in your defence.You tell the facts and state that because you never got the funds the CRA agreed to write off your tax debt related to the LIRA and while the Trust Company seems to think they paid the CRA for you they did not.
Does that help?
