Not so much. The previous Province was always on the hook until the new one accepted you. Ontario waiving the 90 day requirement was closely linked in time to the introduction of user fees.ArmyVern said:Wow; actual progress!!
After a bunch of surprised individuals during the last federal election, my unit has added the SOR as a document to review during the annual readiness verification. We cannot insist that people change their vote to thier current address (and we shouldn't), but a lot of people do eventually decide they have developed more roots in their current location than where they first joined. If they are not reminded of the SOR, then they forget and become surprised that they cannot vote locally at election time.Infanteer said:Perhaps an updated SOR needs to be part of a posting? Is that legal?
The box on the tax forms is for voting residence - it does not apply to military with an SOR.Infanteer said:I don't know legalities, but I thought checking the address box on your tax return was stating your primary residence.

ArmyVern said:Here's my situation.
I'm posted to Kingston and 9er D is in Quebec. He has the residence, I'm the unaccompanied. Because our primary residence is in Quebec, we both have to file Quebec taxes. Quebec taxes are deducted from my pay in Ontario.
Because he is posted in Quebec, he gets PLD. I do not - even though I am paying the much-higher Quebec tax rate. If we were both posted "in" Quebec, we would both get PLD although mine would be at the reduced rate. So, I pay Quebec taxes etc, yet receive no offset via any 'partial to the partial' PLD - somewhat understandable as I only spend weekends there ... but the taxes here will irritate the hell out of anyone sane!!
So, if PLD is based partially upon the tax rate one is paying upon their income ... you'd think that 'partially' would apply when one is indeed paying the increased tax rate. It doesn't.
