At a May 8, 2019 Roundtable with CRA and the Chartered Professional Accountants of Alberta, CRA informally discussed a number of issues and initiatives, including the following:
whether we will see fewer requests for the same information we provided in the past
IVI procedures are no longer automatic on all small business audits
40% reassessment rate on limited reviews of corporate tax returns – expect more projects
correcting losses carried forward from statute-barred years
providing your comments to guide changes to online services
not uploading documents outside of CRA’s parameters
CRA representatives advised citing Right #9 in the Taxpayers’ Bill of Rights if this is refused and filing a service complaint if access continues to be denied. The guidance for this right, in CRA’s Guide RC17, includes the phrase “If you still disagree with the way your concerns were addressed, you can ask to discuss the matter with the employee’s supervisor.”
escalating unresolved issues to the supervisor at CRA
Note that these comments were informal. The questions and answers are generally published several months after the event, but many of the issues discussed above were outside the context of any specific question.
