    IRS Question

    not in my opinion. "you will want" is still an option in my book. maybe in your book it is, and i'm sooooo sorry that i told someone something they will want to do based on my own experience. again, difference of opinion. is there anything else you'd like to argue about because i'm kind of...

    IRS Question

    um well, i never said "should" as i don't normally "should" people because i don't live their life and i am not eligible to tell someone how or what they "should" do. i said CAN which is far different than MUST in my opinion. Can is an option, must suggests there is no option. guess we have...

    IRS Question

    i'm not getting defensive. i don't think it's appropriate to tell people what they "have" to do just because a financial website says this is what the irs says. everyone's circumstances are different, and just because it's what is recommended or what is written on the irs website, it doesn't...

    IRS Question

    well then i'll keep you updated if the irs ever comes after me. my accountant has been doing my taxes for years, and i had no issue last year, nor this year. my income isn't high enough for the IRS to even care. sometimes, what the irs says on a website and what happens in reality are 2...

    IRS Question

    yes, i have filed as single for the past 2 years since being married and have had no issue so far. since your spouse is not required to pay taxes in the us, i'm not sure how complicated it would make things to file married/filing separately. this is what my accountant advised me to do, since my...

    IRS Question

    how long have you been in canada? if you've been in canada for more than 183 consecutive days, then you will be considered a resident for tax purposes. if you haven't and have no other ties to canada (besides your husband), then you are not required to file canadian taxes until you become pr...

    Any difference in inland outland application forms

    no one can tell you this for sure. only cic will be able to make this determination. if you know what needs to be excluded and/or resent, then follow schnook's advice and get it fixed. otherwise, withdraw and resubmit correctly.

    Any difference in inland outland application forms

    yes, there are different packages. some forms are the same, while others arent. there are also different requirements for inland. my advise is to review the packages on the CIC website to see which one you actually sent. inland...

    When are you considered "In Status" & Process Time.

    did you include an application for an Open Work Permit ALONG with your PR application? if so, then yes, after your current permit expires, you will have implied status. If you did NOT submit an applicatoin for an OWP with your PR application, then no, you will not have implied status when your...

    When are you considered "In Status" & Process Time.

    1) implied status and in status are 2 different things. being "in status" means you are in canada legally, and did not let legal status expire. this means either you entered as a visitor and continued to extend your stay as a visitor by applying for an extension OR this means you entered as a...

    Kinda complicated. Need help!!

    as scylla mentioned, you don't qualify for conjugal. there's nothing stopping him from entering canada as a visitor and working remotely for a us company to support himself if he wants. the fact he doesn't have a job now that can be remote isn't considered an "immigration barrier". neither is...

    How can he move and live in Canada while awaiting approval?

    ] right, they applied for OWP on Jan 27. they did NOT apply for PR on Jan 27. their PR application had already been submitted PRIOR to the pilot program. again, people who have sent in PR applications AND OWP applications TOGETHER AFTER Dec 22 have yet to see results.

    How can he move and live in Canada while awaiting approval?

    almathea, please be respectful and don't use my real name on this forum, and i ask you to delete it in your previous post. thanks. i didn't say ottawa is taking 7 months. i said it's taking 6-10, and that's precisely what 2013 applicants saw and 2014 applicants are seeing. yes, visa offices...

    US outland applicants' thread :)

    the ottawa spreadsheet is the blue link in my signature. it is open editing. feel free to add your information, remembering to be respectful of the information already there. personally, i don't see any purpose in making a new us applicant thread. all the information is there, and if people...

    How can he move and live in Canada while awaiting approval?

    correct, you are there to "visit" your wife. no, it will not look suspicious if you have multiple stamps. they see in their system every time you cross, so it's not going to be a big surprise to them. you don't "apply" for a visitor's record. a visitor's record is GIVEN to you at the border...

    Inland or Uk outland??

    london is NOT taking 29 months. please go to the london thread and read the information provided on their spreadsheet about this. a) the times posted are not averages, b) the time posted reflects pakastani applications sent to london NOT UK citizens. do NOT apply inland because you think...

    How can he move and live in Canada while awaiting approval?

    it is still NOT proven it ONLY takes 4 months to receive an owp!!!!! THere are maybe only 2 applicants on this forum that applied for PR after Dec 22 and claim to have gotten an owp already. First of all, it hasn't actually BEEN four months since the pilot program started, so how can you say...

    How can he move and live in Canada while awaiting approval?

    from my experience, when CBSA sees you have permission to be in canada until a future date, they let you through with no issue. having a future date stamped in my passport was the ONLY time in 1.5 years that I didn't have to go into immigration while crossing the border. i think they see...
