Default Canada Tax when only spent 3 months here

Hi Everyone,

I am sorry if this has been covered before. I tried a search but I am useless at computers!

I have a question about 2012 Tax return. I am leaving Canada at end of March to go back to UK permanently so would only have spent 3 months here this year.

Re 2012 tax do I just fill a tax return for time spent here or the whole year and include any monies from UK? (wont be any other than maternity allowance/benefit as I am pregnant) . I did work for two and a half months and also got stiffed for lots of tax on my RSP closure.

Hope someone can help

On the Candian Tax form you will declare the date you left Canada. I think you should only have to declare the money earnt outside Canada for the duration you were here in 2012.

JB0591 is correct. This time next year you file a 2012 tax return but you only include your income from 01/01/2012 up to the day you leave Canada.

BTW you are not stiffed on your RRSP withdrawal. You deducted your contributions from your taxable income when you made them. Now you have to add them back in. You have still managed to defer tax, which is the next best thing to saving it.
