The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will soon be conducting its seventh annual Office Audit Letter Campaign.
The letter campaign is designed to facilitate changes among a selected taxpayer population by providing this population with relevant information in order to improve their understanding of their current or past reporting requirements and guidance on how to correct any common errors.
During January 2016, CRA will be sending approximately 30,000 “intent-to-audit” letters to selected groups of taxpayers and business owners, who have claimed consecutive business or rental losses or who are employees claiming employment expenses on line 229 of their tax returns.
CRA’s objective of the campaign is to encourage letter recipients to review and where applicable correct their tax affairs by accessing their account on-line through My Account, submitting in paper format any required changes using Form T1-ADJ – T1 Adjustment Request, or through the Voluntary Disclosures Program.
If you would like more information regarding the matter, please following the link: www.cra.gc.ca/lettercampaign.
