I've been a bit irresponsible with my taxes as a student, and now it is time for me to make up for the years of neglect, and file my taxes for the 2007-2012 periods.
I've not filed taxes starting in 2007. I know very well how to file them with on-line software (tax chopper was recommended for being free and good). My question is regarding "carry-forward" credits.
Carry-forward credits cite numbers from the previous years' "notice of assessment." I don't have any notice of assessments from the previous years, since I didn't file them yet, but I do have the numbers that the tax software has calculated.
Is it OK to use these calculated amounts for carry-forward and base my filings on these, and send all 6 filings in the same envelope? Otherwise, I would need to wait 6 to 8 weeks for each year's notice of assessment (meaning 7 to 10 months before I can get to completing 2012).
