    Found a Canada Revenue Agency card stuck in my front door yesterday.

    I'm entirely above-board with taxes, and caught up - so I immediately called this morning to see wtf they wanted.

    Turns out they were looking for my tenant, not me. He's been living here for a year and a half, so it makes sense that he gives this out as his home address. HE is NOT above-board with Rev. Canada, and nowhere close to being up-to-date with taxes.

    Here's my concern: my house is not designated as 2 separate living spaces. Guy rents out my basement.

    I do not declare this as income.

    Can I get into trouble here???????? :ohnoes:

    I told her that I "dated" him, but he didn't live here. She asked for his "home address", I told her that I was uncomfortable revealing his personal information but that I'd get him to call.

    And you are correct - he's $2,800 behind now. :facepalm:

    I know - hence my concern jaw.

    He's right though Chuck.......I just don't specifically know the laws/regulations, and I'm worried that I'm going to be in trouble.

    I try so hard to stay OUT of trouble nowadays!

    OR say he's REALLY behind on his rent and there's no income to declare. :idea:

    Throw him under the bus. Save yourself.

    Year and a half........$2800 is only about 5 months behind. I'll have to declare the backdated rent.

    Not to mention he's a friend, and I don't throw people under the bus.

    I'll sleep with him first and make the whole "boyfriend" thing easier to lie about. He's Italian though...........
