Don't Be Intimidated By An Audit

Take Me To Post Comment Form

Many people panic when they receive a tax audit notification letter from the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA). However, a tax audit is not meant to intimidate taxpayers. It is a random process that is usually performed to investigate a filed return's accuracy. A tax firm is comprised of a group of tax professionals who handle the investigation of individuals’ and businesses' returns to clear up any discrepancies that may be found in them. Punitive measures are normally not involved when the taxpayer can produce copies of the filed returns along with the necessary documentation for the period cited. As long as their deductions and earnings can be supported with documentation, the audit can be completed without any further action.

There are cases during an audit investigation when the tax agency will conclude that the deductions on a taxpayer's return were not allowable, that earned income was deliberately hidden or that the taxpayer failed to file an annual return altogether. The Income Tax Act, under Section 238 and 239, specifically deals with tax evasion offenses, and persons found guilty can receive a monetary penalty and/or several month’s imprisonment. A tax audit can also prove problematic for individuals who have filed their returns late or have missing information on their tax returns. Canadians who have failed to file their returns by midnight on April 30th will be charged a penalty along with a percentage (interest) for the balance owed for the current year and for each full month that the return is late by the (CRA).
