    Extending visitor visa 2nd time when 1st approval is pending

    The issue is that if the first extension does not come by the time she completes a year/or by the time requested in the application which was an extension for another 6 months from the date her status expires, than can she continue to stay in the country till the time that result comes?

    Hi, My mother in law came to Canada on the 9th March, and owing to Covid-19 we thought it's best if we wait it out. I applied for her extension on the 20th July 2020, but there is no update to her application till date. As the pandemic is still on going we want her to stay further. Now, the...

The itinerary is...

    To claim or not to claim your non-resident spouse on your Canadian tax return

    Rob, I have seen your posts and you have been very helpful. We were just finishing my wife's taxes and submitting them through TaxTurbo. For her its pretty simple. Landed in Feb, returned a week later with a SIN and that's all. So did I. She returned in August and started working. For Aug to...

    Tax concern - Am I a partial resident?

    Yes, I did mention that. Explicitly mentioned primary ties, and then secondary ties. That's when the "overthinking" comment came from. My wife is filling her taxes for 2017, for the first time here. In-fact, I am her dependent rather than the other way around, now that I am unemployed. I wanted...

    Canada Child Benefits

    ok, so when will that global income start from? because in this case we became residents of Canada for "tax purposes" when we established "significant ties" with Canada, which is from August. Hence, what is the amount needed to be entered. Also, as far as income tax goes, does the 183 day rule...

    Tax concern - Am I a partial resident?

    Ok, sure, will do that. There is treaty to avoid double taxation between Canada & Singapore. I would not have bothered with all this, if there hadn't have been a drastic difference between tax rates in Singapore vs Canada.

    Taxation for new immigrants

    Yes, there is a treaty. But then again, the tax in Singapore is quite lower than canada, and the $ is about the same exchange rate. Moreover, I presume that the world income I declare to CRA would only be from when I became a resident for tax purposes i.e. august. Is there a minimum amount...

    New immigrant subject to Canadian taxes on world-income?

    What if the family is self sufficient i.e. my wife is working and will pay taxes. She is a PR and supports my daughter. I am a PR but only have my name on the lease (in addition to my wife) and no other ties and I work and pay Significant taxes outside canada. Do I still have to pay taxes?

    Tax concern - Am I a partial resident?

    So, technically I should be in a better position than your friend right? Because my wife will be the one receiving the payment for my child, even though both parents have to provide their SINs. Also, she is employed, so I don't support them, so that helps? Any other suggestion, on what I can do...
