Default Filing taxes while not resident

If one received a PR but did not reside in Canada for the first two years and
only started residing during the third year (PR is maintained due to 2/5 year
law), does he/she have to file taxes for the first two years.

Your response is appreciated.

Default Re: Filing taxes while not resident

The short answer is no. Residency for Canada's tax purposes is separate from your immigration status. If you have not, on December 31st of the year in question, lived in Canada, had not owned any property in Canada, had no bank, credit, lease or utility accounts in Canada, and had no spouse in Canada, then you most likely will not have to file the tax return for that year. Go to the Canada Customs and Revenue website here:

http://www.ccra-adrc.gc.ca/tax/individuals/t1general/

Download the income tax guide, and look up the definition of "factual resident". If you were not a factual resident on December 31st of the year in question, then you do not have to file taxes.
