I have not, but if you do could you post the case law? I've been looking for that for a while. The "problem" is that most people would do it voluntarily, since it is obviously the right thing to...

You make over $200k a year, do you not have a lawyer you can call?

Why not just file with FRO? If wants to use something other than his line 150 income, then he can do a motion to change himself. He doesn't get to just pick a T4 and use it.

I think FRO will follow the court order. In your case, that evidently has you paying a lot more, so you are going to have to get it changed.

Person C: $30k

A gives $30k to C
