A close friend of mine is an Executor of a Will of someone who passed in 2016. This was their first and last time being an Executor.

What happened was the Executor was cleaning up many unfiled tax returns of the deceased.

When filing the manual paper return in late 2017 for the 2007 tax year one deduction was not entered in the 2007 tax return despite the actual Information tax slip showing the deduction was attached.

Due to the Executor's health and family crisis issues, the Executor was not aware of the omission until early 2020.

A Notice of Objection was failed for the tax year 2007 in early 2020. A letter from CRA was received recently denied the Objection and the extenuating circumstances. They were ignored.

As such, is it possible to appeal the Notice of Objection and how "likely" based on past experience and precedents would the appeal be successful?

Please, no ad hominem attacks. Thanks

You should have filed a T1-Adj for the year in question (2007). Still worth a try.
I agree it should have been a T1-Adj. It was not a CRA mistake. It was a tax filer's mistake.

The OP can try a T1-ADJ at this point but CRA will likely argue this is outside the 10 year window limit....even if the 2007 tax return was not filed until 2017. It is the tax year itself that applies. In this case, 2007.
