T1135-Foreign Income Verification Statement
All Canadians are required to report their worldwide income as well as any assets outside Canada over $100,000 by using form T1135. But this is most common mistakes new immigrants are doing by not declaring the foreign income or assets each year. It increases their hassle when they decide to bring back the proceeds of the income or assets from the foreign country. Because if T1135 is not filed each year then CRA considers all the money received as income on the year of receipt and are subject to tax in Canada. These foreign reporting forms provide information to CRA about the foreign assets as well as income on the foreign assets. This also ensures CRA that the Canadian residents are paying taxes on income earned on foreign assets.
