Filing Taxes After bankruptcy


I filed for bankruptcy in July 2008 and was discharged in April 2009. My trustee filed my tax return for 2008 both pre and post bankruptcy. For my 2009 income tax, will I need to file another paper return or can I go back to e-filing?

You will likely have to paper file the year immediately after the bankruptcy. This is more dependent on Canada Revenue Agency then anything, but in most instances they haven’t updated all their internal files and as a result the availability of efiling is somewhat questionable.
