If you are leaving Canada and want to determine your tax status, the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency provides form NR73 Determination of Residency Status (Leaving Canada) if you want to obtain an official determination. This is essentially a questionnaire in which you provide details of your residential ties or lack of them. Normally our Calgary tax attorneys submit supplemental information to CRA to support the non-resident status of our Canadian tax clients. To become a non-resident of Canada you must divest yourself of as many residential ties as possible. Proper pre-departure planning is essential. For assistance in becoming a non resident of Canada contact one of our top Calgary tax attorneys for assistance.
