The foreign country doesn't "notify Canada" but the next time you file taxes they will look at the discrepatancies, ie you made 25K one year, then the next year you were out of the country and claimed no income, then when you return you claim 30K. So if they want they may choose to investigate you.

are you collecting EI by any chance? if so they will find out my friend left to see the World cup a few years back and the next year they penalized him as you cannot leave the country while collecting EI.

given that I'm sure they will know.

no I'm not collecting EI, and I have allready left the country. The question is ... will the canadian revenue agency know I worked legally (with a work permit) overseas if I don't tell them? Basicaly will the canadian revenue ask why I didn't claim foreign funds or would they only know about me working overseas if I tell them??:confused:

I would think that if you legally obtained a work permit from another country, the CCRA would find out.

That information is something that strikes me as likely being communicated between two countries.

as far as i know you're not penalised. you pay taxes in the country you lived and worked in for the duration of your stay.

i live and work in the uk and my accountant did my canadian taxes last year, as i moved in june 2005. my income here was not claimed, it was only rent, income and expenditures from when i lived in canada.

What kind of work permit did you get? I have had a few TN's and Revenue Canada does not know I had them. They are issued by the US government, and really has nothing to do with Canada - except that I can get it because I am a Canadian Citizen.

I think that you are OK unless you made a shit load of cash - they may wonder where the money came from.

well its an "alien resident certificate" ARC, and basically means I am a temporary citizen of a foreign country. After speaking to a revenue office in canada they state that I have to claim it on my tax return... but do I?? would anyone really know??

oh, yeah I would think you "have to claim it" - but I would think that is like a painter doing side jobs on the weekend..they have to claim that income too, but surely, they don't.

You should be ok..but I am totally talking out of my ass , and from your descirption, and the info you have received this is what "I think"
