Q: I do not have any tax like documents and I don’t know which year I missed to report. What shall I do?

Salina: If you are missing some of your tax slips and/ or you’re not sure which years you need to file for, you can request copies of you missing tax slips by calling the CRA at: 1 800-959-8281.  The agent will ask you some security questions to make sure it’s you.  This will include your basic personal information, the address they have on file for you (which may be an address you had a long time ago depending on how many times you’ve moved since you last filed a return, and information off either an old Notice of Assessment or from  tax slips from previous years.  If you pass the security questions, you can ask the agent which years you need to file for and have them send your missing tax slips to you.

If you don’t want to call the CRA or can’t pass their security questions, you could use the attached form letter to request your missing tax slips.  Just fill in your personal information, sign and date the letter and mail it to the CRA’s Winnipeg Office:

Winnipeg Tax Centre
