    Default I am so dumb ...

    So since last sumer we have not recieved any CCTC. We were still recieveing the Haper 100 so I figured we no longer qualified for the other because DH's income went up. Well upon researching some stuff for income tax I discovered that my income tax last year was never processed. I sent a paper form for some reason last year (I always file online) and I never knew it did not get there. I do not make any income other than the Harper 100 (well that year) so my claim was for 0. I just never clued in that I got nothing to say they got it and they never sent anything to say they did not.

    Anyway fast forward to now I find out we were entitled to $$ this past year... mind you not much. Less than $40 a month... but that adds up over time. Why am I so clueless?? I still have to try again tomorrow to reach the right department to see if we can still get those funds... but really I just feel so dumb - lol

    Don't stress. You're totally entitled to that money and they will back pay it. Nice little cheque coming your way then... got any big plans?

    They do back pay. I was just lazy and then completely forgot and had never recieved anything for the first 1 1/2 years of my dd's life. It was really nice receiving the first couple of checks

    Your life is a result of the choices you make, if you don't like your life it's time to start making better choices.

    I checked online, and it said they only back pay 11 months from when they receive the application... Unless you provide in writing what prevented you from applying quickly. DS is 18 months, and we still don't have his canadian citizenship certificate (he was born in the US) It's been processing from last Jan. So I hope that's enough of a reason for them!

    I am sure that as long as you show them that you applied for his citizenship last year then they would not be able to give you the run around on it

    And thank you ladies for not thinking i was a complete moron - lol. I felt silly not realizing my taxes had not been processed... lol. I am excited for the check though.... should be nice. We do not qualify for much... but shoul dget a couple hundred from back pay
