TAXPAYER RELIEF APPLICATIONS

Our mission is to help you in the drafting process.  Sometimes, life events can impact your ability to file your taxes.  This can then lead to CRA imposing large penalties and interest on assessed or unassessed amounts.  A specialized application may be your remedy.

Extraordinary Circumstances?

How We
Can Help

These specialized applications allow the Canada Revenue Agency to cancel or waive a taxpayer’s penalties and interest (on assessed or unassessed amounts) in certain situations like extraordinary circumstances that are beyond the taxpayer’s control, actions of the CRA that are due to errors and delays on their part, financial hardship or an inability to pay, or other circumstances the don’t fall within these categories.  At the present time, we do not offer legal advice on tax law or on matters involving the Income Tax Act; however, we can help you draft the narrative for your application.  These relief applications are rarely granted due to poor wording and the taxpayer’s failure to relate his or her life event to his or her failure to file on a timely manner.  Contact us to get started. 

The only difference between a tax man and a taxidermist is that the taxidermist leaves the skin.
