TAX TICKLERS… some quick points to consider…

  • An individual’s online CRA account (My Account) is now linked to their online Service Canada Account (EI, CPP, OAS, etc.) to provide both departments’ information in a single log-in session.
  • Over the past two years, CRA has completed over 21,000 files related to real estate, assessing over $329 million in previously unreported income, and applying over $17 million in penalties.
  • CRA can assist the IRS in collecting a debt. In one case, CRA assisted in collecting a six figure U.S. tax penalty for unfiled disclosures from a U.S. citizen resident in Canada.
  • CRA fraud prevention measure – individuals can register with CRA to be notified by email when CRA’s files indicate that the individual’s address has changed, banking information for direct deposit has changed, or if mail sent by CRA was returned.
