I sponsored my mom and she got PR on 15-Oct-2016. As she stayed here as a visitor (Supervisa) prior to becoming a PR, she has just become eligible to apply for citizenship.

Now since she did not have any sort of income nor had any benefits from Canada, I never filed her taxes. However, she has a SIN (never used) from the time of PR. Now, no. 12 of the application has become a concern for me.

Is it okay to apply by stating that she did not have to file taxes from 2016-18? Or, should I file all her previous taxes this year and then apply?

I will appreciate your response. Thanks.

1. No need to file taxes, if she had no taxable income. I assume she doesn't have more than $100K in assets overseas, if she does, then she should have filed a tax return.
