Default Spousal sponsorship PR visa application question - sponsor side question

Hello,

I (Canadian citizen) will be sponsoring my wife (with no dependent children)
who is japanese in an out of country PR visa application.... on my end,
filling out the sponsorship papers. Am I suppose supposed to send an
employment letter along with my pay stubs and an original "Option C
Printout" (what is option C?) for my last taxation year?

If I have not filed my last year's income tax return form yet, would I just
explain to them that that hasn't been done yet, or can an option C form
still be still be obtained if one's tax assessment has not been completed
yet? WOuld the above information (employment letter and paystubs be
sufficient?)

THanks

Since I live outside of Canada, I do not file in Canada and therefore
can't order an Option C printout from Revenue Canada for the last
taxation year. On a separate sheet of paper, I outlined my situation
and included copies of my tax forms filed in the U.S. (the foreign
equivalent of the Option C printout, I believe). I'm not sure from
what you describe if you'll be filing in Canada or outside. If you
can't provide Option C, then I would just describe your situation on
another sheet of paper.

Hope this helps!

Your Option C printout is the Notice of Assessment that you receive
from Canada Customs and Revenue when you file your tax returns. You
need to include an original of that, as well as all your T4's from
your wages and other income documents that you filed with the return.
You can call Canada Customs and Revenue and they will send you
originals to use for your PR application.

If you are currently employed, you also need to send a letter from
your current employer stating your length of employment and wages.

If you haven't filed tax for 2002 yet, I would include a letter
stating that, along with your Notice of Assessment and supporting T4's
etc. for tax year 2001. If you have any T4's for 2002, I would
include those as additional documentation. Since they want originals
in your PR application, I would call Canada Customs to get a duplicate
set of originals so you can use your current ones when you file for
2002.
