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.

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.

“Need someone who can talk CRA and walk tax law stuff? I did. After an expensive year of trying to resolve a CRA issue on my own – I was very happy to have Sam Faris in the ring with me. I am confident that no lawyer or CA could have prepared a stronger case report to support my appeal. Sam approached my case professionally and skillfully from all angles possible and personally made sure I understood exactly what was going on; every step of the way.”
