Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

No. You will not get in trouble.

CRA knows that people fall behind for many different reasons.

If you have had a job, your employer is already sending in tax money on your behalf, so it's unlikely you owe a lot of taxes, if at all.

Do the most recent year first. Then tackle the older ones. Who knows? You may be entitled to some refund money.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb

Thank you. ***** file a tax return for the most recent year will that filing then put in motion a request from CRA for the other missing years ?
Tax Professional: Barbara, Enrolled Agent replied 1 year ago

Not necessarily, because you have not received any notifications from them thus far.

My best guess is that you are due a refund--that's why you haven't heard from them.
