CRA say they are missing my tax return from 1994 to 2002
Background here, is I have a couple Limited Companies in Canada, for the past 30 years. The larger ones were a Roofing Company, and I had a smaller one (which is the one involved here) which I incorporated in 1994. I failed to get this smaller one active, and did not file tax returns for 1994 to 2002, as it was not operating. In that year 2002, I re- activated this company, and used it for rentals income on a residential house I had.
This summer I shut down this company. Reason why is at 60 years old, I am going to retire. In doing this the company was been closed by voluntary dissolution in BC, and final tax return filed with CRA. With this, there is not a concern with the dissolution, or final return.
The problem is I have a Credit Balance of $2,800 with CRA in this Limited company. The credit came because I overpaid on the taxes due on it this year.
CRA does not want to give me back this $2,800 because they have advised me the following, in 2 different phone calls I made with them.
• Because this company was activated 12 days into our fiscal year, in 2002. They do not have a return for this 12 day period in 2002. They do have returns from year 1994 up to this 12 day period missing in 2002.
• Second call they advised me they do not have any returns from the year 1994 to 2002.
These are the problems here.
• CRA since 2002 has never advised me that the tax returns from 1994 to 2002.
So what the heck do I do here?
