The CRA allows taxpayers who have omitted income from their tax return, and have yet to be audited, to come forward and avoid any penalties they would incur in the event of an audit. A voluntary disclosure can be made on an anonymous basis and we can help ensure you remain anonymous. The CRA will make a decision on whether or not to allow a voluntary disclosure before a taxpayer is required to break their anonymity. A voluntary disclosure is an excellent way of avoiding penalties and paying taxes owing before being audited. Do not hesitate to contact us should you require more information on how to make a voluntary disclosure and how we can assist you.
Taxpayer Relief Applications
We have noticed that the general public is largely unaware of the Taxpayer Relief Application. Many people may have favourable circumstances which may allow them to get relief on some of the interest and penalties that are part of the taxes owing to CRA. Additionally, the applications are not (as a general matter) very expensive to complete and we can make them very cost effective. Generally speaking there are three categories for interest and penalty relief:
1) Where there has been CRA actions that have caused delay in your matter being processed.
2) Extraordinary circumstances (such as death in family or natural disaster.
3) Financial hardship.
These categories are not the end of it. The CRA can grant interest and penalty relief in other circumstances that may not fall into these categories. There is no guarantee that your application will be accepted. The amount and the circumstances surrounding your application will determine whether or not an application is worthwhile.
If a Taxpayer Relief Application is something you think you may be able to benefit from, do not hesitate to contact us by phone or emial:
