Hi Everyone. I hope someone can help me.
I have a client who came to Canda in July with his wife. They both got their PR but the wife went back to her homeland in September to work and be with their children. (because of the negative remarks about the children I will rephrase that the wife went back to her homeland with their children) The husband work in Canada. When they came to Canada, in August they opened a bank account In both their names. and deposited $$ into each account. I asked him if they reported this money to immigration he said no because they did not ask. and he did not have the money on him at the time of entry .
So my question is do I need to report the wife’s income on his return? Also, do I file a return for her because she is now a PR? So her income is only being used in her homeland, she has sent her husband some money to help him out. Do I need to know that amount and claim it?
Oh also do I need to report the children they do not live in Canada right now but they were registered with the parents when they did their PR.
So many questions for this tax return I usually have the answers but this one has me a bit stumped.
Thank you in advance for your help
