Father passed away - hasn't filed income tax in 12 years
My father recently passed away and I learned he hasn't filed an income tax return in 12 years. Most of these years he received no income aside from OAS and CPP but for a couple of them he was a small business owner. I am currently searching for a good local accountant but I just wanted to get the facts so I am prepared. I also found out that all of the book keeping records for the small business have been destroyed. The income was very little and probably below his personal exemption limit. Is there a statute of limitations on income tax and/or gst? Any tips?
