Canada Tax Questions Answered by Experts
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.
Are you asking about a tax refund from Canada on taxes you paid in Canada?
Where are you a resident?
But where are you a resident?
So was the tax you paid in Canada withdrawn at source?
Then when you filed your return you expected to get a refund but did not. Is that it?
Then you are correct.
Your US income has no relevance when you are not a resident of Canada.
The only income you need to report is your income earned in Canada.
I suggest that you retain a chartered accountant in your city and have the account assist you in filing an appeal.
Does that help as a starting point?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.
Only residents of Canada must report their world-wide income.
It sounds like they think you are a resident of Canada.
Go back again and ask why it it world-wide income when you are not a resident.
That doesn't make any sense.
That information is vital.
I think you need to see someone else.
I think you should be see a bona fide chartered accountant in Canada to take care of your Return for Canada.
An accountant in Canada can do the return and then appeal the notice of assessment.
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
