I worked overseas for many years and declared non-resident during that period. I moved to Canada in 2017 permanently and file Canadian tax returns for 4 years with a Canadian address. I don't live and work in another country any more.



I opened a Tax free saving account in 2020. CRA still taxed me for "owning a Tax Free Saving Account as a non-resident."


Based on the above fact, I thought CRA assume I am a Canada resident. What should I do?
