Can Factual resident qualify for GST, UCB and child tax benefit while they were living outside Canada for 10 years? They want to file for 2014, 2015 & 2016 tax years.
A family (Husband, wife and daughter 12 years old now) left Canada in 2009, worked in Middle East and returned in March 2017. They are Canadian citizens and have no status in middle east other than employment. No ties to Canada while they were away. I am wondering if they would be considered factual residents and the tax return would be just a regular return with the foreign income? Would they be qualified for GST, UCB and CTB for 2014, 2015, 2016. They never filed any NR73 or NR74. Would it be too late to file NR73 and NR74 with their tax return (paper filed)? Would really appreciate your help.
