Hi

I am a Canadian non-resident and now - after many years - need to spend some time back home. I understand that if I spend more than 182 days in a year in Canada I have to pay Canadian taxes on my worldwide income.

1) But is this in a calendar year (Jan1 to Dec31) or is this any 182 days period?

2) For example if I spent Nov1 - Nov30, 2011 (30 days) in canada then spent Jan1 to Jun15, 2012 (167 days) in Canada then left for the remainder of 2012, would I have to pay Cdn taxes for 2011 or 2012?

3) Also, if I spend July5 to Dec31, 2012 (180 days) in Canada and all of 2013, will I have to pay taxes on the time spent in Canada in 2012?

Any help with this would be much appreciated. I have been looking for an answer to this on the Internet and can't find any details anywhere - just the same comment about 182 days a year without any specifics.

Thanks,
Nigel
