Some people need clarification to determine if they are residents of Canada or not in the eyes of CRA for tax purposes.
If an individual lives in some other country, they are automatically considered a non-resident of Canada for tax puopose.
Suppose an individual partly lives in Canada and partly in some other country. In that case, they are considered a non-resident as long as they live in Canada for less than 183 days of a tax year and have no significant resident ties with Canada.
If a person spends 183 days in Canada and has few ties, he will be considered a non-resident.
But, if an individual spends 183 days in Canada and has a spouse, a home, or a car in the country, he may be considered a resident.
It is better to contact a expert income tax accountant before filing return to ensure you declare the proper status for tax purpose.
