, A licensed trustee said:

$500,000 for a couple, excluding any mortgages on their princiapl residence.

To file togther (the term is jointly) all or substantially all of your debts need to be the same. This usually means that at least 90% of your debts are the same as the person you want to file jointly with.

The limit for a single person filing is $250,000 excluding mortgages on your principal residence.

And yes, tax debts are included and may be dealt with by a consumer proposal…
