When the tax man comes knocking

More than a month following the deadline for filing a 2018 income tax return, by now you’ve likely heard back from the Canada Revenue Agency in the form of a Notice of Assessment. This is the confirmation from the tax man that your return has been processed and accepted as filed – however some of us aren’t so lucky.

In some less fortunate cases, you might receive a request for more supporting information. This request may be made in a written review letter, either mailed to you or, if you’re a signed up for the CRA’s My Account online access service, sent through to you electronically. In some cases, it’s an appointment for a field audit where the CRA comes to visit.
