Accounts emptied without warning? Could be a problem with CRA, says taxpayers’ Ombudsman
Canada’s Taxpayers’ Ombudsman is investigating what seems to be a problem with the federal tax agency freezing and emptying accounts without warning.
It’s a problem that shut down a small business in St. John’s last month.
In early October, CBC News reported that Fixed Coffee and Baking owner Jonathan Howse had to close one of his locations when, according to Howse, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) emptied his business’s bank account without warning.
