Karen Selick is a key player in bringing the government into rein, in how they treat Canadians with disdain. I would have to agree that what Karen describes is exactly correct. In my opinion CRA practices “Financial Terrorism.”

Here is Karen’s letter to Stephen Harper. (The guy with the smoking gun.)

Man charged $21,000 in back-taxes for income from a company that he never worked for.

Ryan Foulds an Abbotsford 32 year old baker in Surry BC, has spent months battling CRA after being ordered to pay over $20,000 in back taxes for income he never earned, at a company he never worked for.

We are updating you on the state of affairs in respect to CRA progress in dealing with Donation Scheme cases.

In respect to allowing the cash portion of charitable donations, a final resolution has taken a set back. CRA lost their case in Tax Court, but have appealed the case to the Federal Court of Appeal. It seems that due to the amount of money on the table, CRA is determined to push this all the way. I guess it does not matter to them how many financial lives are at stake here. Somehow taking years to resolve matters does not seem to matter.

On the question of; how to pick the right Tax Representative

Picking a Tax Representative requires making sure that you make the right choices, when it comes to picking a lawyer or… do you really need a lawyer at all. If it clearly is a case of criminal tax evasion, using a lawyer is highly recommended. Otherwise a Professional Tax Representative may be the way to go.

Phasing out the penny: tax implications for businesses

Posted by admin on December 16, 2012

And … as further evidence that audits are not random… note A8. (below) Phasing out the penny will not increase a business’s risk of being audited. 

CRA Interview Rooms are monitored

Advanced Inc. Posted this information below on their web site to promote their services.

Based on that, it is pretty certain that we were correct when we stated that we believed the meeting rooms had surveillance cameras.

What that means is that there is proof of what is said, and your statements can be used against you.

Sometimes the tax courts and the Federal Court of Appeal, just makes my day. This is one of them. The Ten Year limit on Penalty and interest relief applications. The Federal Court of Appeal decides in Taxpayers favour. Bozzer V. Canada.
