CRA Tax Disputes

How to Prepare

When it comes to preparing to dispute a tax assessment, ensuring all your documentation is in order is essential. With this information on hand, a professional CPA can proceed with the disputing process and ensure any errors from the auditor are rectified.

Finding a CPA you can trust is the next step. Your CPA should have ample experience dealing with the CRA and addressing a wide selection of accounting needs. If you believe an auditor has misrepresented your returns, your CPA must be able to walk you through the entire dispute process, ensuring you understand the details of your tax assessment and the appropriate next steps.

The Process of a Tax Dispute Resolution

If you suspect an error in your assessment, there are steps that can be taken to dispute claims made by the CRA.

The process of a tax dispute resolution begins by filling out the appropriate forms to submit to the agency. Tax disputes can be submitted online using the File a formal dispute form or by mail using form T400A, Notice of Objection – Income Tax Act. There is a selection of information that must be noted in these forms, including current dates and the details of your assessment dispute.

During this process, your CPA will help you organize the details of your dispute and ensure you have all the relevant information to achieve your desired resolution.

FAQS

What is a tax dispute?

A tax dispute is a form filed by an individual or organization when there is a disagreement with the amount of tax the CRA has outlined must be paid in their notice of assessment.

In a notice of assessment — or NOA — taxpayers are given a breakdown of the money owed to the federal government based on the returns filed that year. If the taxpayer believes there is a discrepancy or error in their NOA, they can fill out the necessary forms to achieve a tax dispute resolution.

What are the types of tax disputes?

There are three prominent types of disputes to be mindful of when seeking a tax dispute resolution:

Tax Audit

In certain cases, before an NOA is sent, the CRA may notify you of a pending tax audit. Audits are typically the result of missing information on your filed tax return and will either focus on specific issues or you’ll be issued a full-scale personal or professional audit.

Notice of Reassessment

After you’ve submitted your return, the CRA may decide they disagree with the information provided and issue a Notice of Reassessment. Taxpayers have up to 90 days after the date listed on the reassessment to file a notice of objection and challenge the CRA’s decision.

Tax Litigation

Litigation occurs in front of the Tax Court of Canada, a specialized court designed to hear various tax disputes. To appear before the court, a Notice of Appeal must be filed with attached documentation to support your claim.

How do I dispute my tax assessment?

If you believe there is a discrepancy in your NOA, you can begin the process of a tax dispute with the CRA. While this can be done individually, a licensed CPA is often the most effective and efficient partner to achieve your desired results.

A CPA has the experience and insight to ensure that you include all necessary dates and details in your dispute form and will comb through your assessment to identify any errors made by the auditor. They will guide you through the entire process, whether you’re submitting your claim online using the File a formal dispute form or by mail using form T400A, Notice of Objection – Income Tax Act.

How much does it cost to dispute a tax audit?

The cost of working with a professional CPA to dispute your current tax assessment can vary, depending on the scope of services required.

At Faris CPA, we believe in fair and transparent prices. We’ll meet with you to determine your accounting or audit-related needs and ensure we provide a comprehensive breakdown of our services.

Sam of Faris CPA is an expert with CRA issues. I have waisted significant amount of money by hiring other professionals who never delivered. Sam’s promises are solid and he never disappointed me. Sam’s work quality exceeds expectations. Many thanks Sam and I will absolutely recommend your service to family and friends.
Before hiring Faris CPA, I shopped around and I hired a CPA firm who offered significantly cheaper fee than Faris CPA. I must admit that this was a mistake. That firm promised the moon and they did not deliver. I learned by accident that the firm outsourced my file to a firm in India. I was very upset as I did not consent to have my returns done in India. I lost trust in the firm as the firm mislead me by making me believe that my file is being handled properly and efficiently by CPAs who are knowledgeable in Canadian taxes. I had to fire them immediately and hired Faris CPA. Sam Faris and his team dealt with my case efficiently and on timely basis. As a result, my many years of outstanding personal and corporate tax returns have been filed as promised. The taxes that I ended up owing are way less than what I expected. Sam Faris and his team performed a good tax planning strategy which saved me taxes. Faris CPA fee is very reasonable considering the quality of work that has been delivered and the tax saving that was achieved.Don’t hire a firm who provides cheaper fee as you will end up paying twice. In my situation, I ended up paying to a firm who outsourced my file to India and I came back and hired Faris to complete the job properly. Save your money, time and emotions and hire Faris CPA and they will get the job done to your satisfaction.

CRA audited me based on net worth audit. This audit lasted almost 2 years. I suffered emotionally and financially as a result. Bringing Sam and his team into the picture was the best decision that I have ever made. Sam followed a very unique strategy which led to dropping the taxes to my satisfaction. Thanks Sam for all your hard work.
