Distribute Succession Property
Before you distribute succession property, you must ensure that:
- all the deceased's (and, if applicable, the succession's) income tax returns have been filed;
- all notices of assessment have been issued;
- all balances have been paid.
If you distribute the deceased's property or the succession's post-death income before we issue you an authorization certificate, you will be personally liable for paying us any amounts owed, up to the value of the distributed property or income. As a rule, you are liable for four years as of the date of distribution.
The steps are not necessarily the same for all liquidators. Complete our questionnaire to see what steps you have to follow based on your situation.
