Yes, you need to complete an income tax return even if you signed a consumer proposal. 

 

If you claimed bankruptcy - Check out our FAQ Can I use TurboTax if I declared bankruptcy in the tax year?

Thanks. Yes, I understand that a return must be filed every year regardless. Even when deceased someone must file the final return. To clarify, can one use the Turbotax "software" while in a Proposal or does one have to do a "paper return?" I've heard that it most likely will have to be a paper return. Please advise. Thanks.
