Income Tax Review

Have you been selected for a Tax Review? Learn more about it here.

First step: Don't panic.

The CRA reviews tax returns every year to make sure that income amounts, deductions and credits have been reported correctly. Several individuals are selected for a wide variety of reasons and sometimes, for no specific reason (random selection). In most cases, it is a simple routine check to make sure that the information that you provided on your tax return is correct.

Respond the letter within the time range provided

It is important to respond the letter within the time range provided in the letter. If you need help to understand what needs to be sent to the CRA, call the number stated in the letter. That phone number will connect you directly with the agent in charge of your tax review.

Need more time to respond?

Call the CRA as soon as possible and ask for an extension. 

Keep your contact information updated

Important notices may be missed if you move or if you do not check your email often. Always make sure to have your address, phone number and email updated with the CRA. Never ignore a communication sent by the CRA. If you are not sure if the message is legit, call the CRA directly and ask for information.
