Applying for tax from overseas, used to live in Canada on working holiday. What data to input for address because I am overseas.

Hello I am in Australia, used to live in Canada on a working holiday visa. I used this service to file tax returns from 2015/16 2016/17 2017/18 and now need to do my 2018/19.

As I do not have a Canadian address I cannot use NETFILE (even though I have used it previously?)

I am unable to input my overseas address into the system even though it asks if my mailing address is overseas. 

My partner (Canadian citizen) lives in Canada am I able to use her mailing address?

I was able to put her address in but when it asks for where I live I cannot use my address (phone number and postal code is not accepted.

Would I use my address that I had when I was living in Canada at that time and use my partners current address as my mailing address?

If not how can I input my current Data so I am able to print out and mail my tax return?

Are you able to email me?

thank you,

William Stormont.


When filling out your income tax return, enter your Canadian address and when you print it out, you can manually change it to your Australian address.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
