Tax Appeal, Audit, Dispute and Settlement

Tax Appeal, Audit, Dispute and Settlement

We understand that dealing with the CRA (Canada Revenue Agency) and tax laws can be a very stressful experience. Therefore, our objective is not only to minimize the taxes our clients owe within those tax laws, but to also reduce the stress by taking the weight of dealing with the CRA on a day-to-day basis off your shoulders.

Professional accountants at High & Wide Financial have an excellent understanding of the complexity of tax legislation and administrative policy of taxation authorities. We bring our knowledge with us when negotiating with government tax auditors and appeals officers or when assisting a tax lawyer in appearing in tax court on behalf of a client.

There are various methods to resolving income tax disputes and some of our steps and procedures include the following:

  • Representation during CRA audits
  • Preparation of fairness applications
  • Preparing and filing a note of objection
  • Meet and negotiate with income tax auditors
  • Preparation of applications for waiver of interest and penalties under the fairness provisions
  • Prepare waivers
  • Request T-20 forms from CRA (Auditors working papers)
  • Assist in the preparation of settlement offer
  • Prepare a remission order
  • Voluntary disclosure submissions
  • Assist in preparing unfilled tax returns
  • Negotiating of repayment over a specified time period
  • Many other procedures

We represent taxpayers in the following areas:

  • Income Tax Act
  • Unemployment/Employment Insurance Act
  • Canada Pension Plan
  • Old Age Security
  • Director Liability for unpaid taxes
  • GST, PST, etc.

Our goal is to provide customized solutions for difficult tax problems. Our firm recognizes that when it comes to tax litigation, one size doesn’t fit all. Don’t be one of those taxpayers that waive their rights in appealing a notice of assessment and/or filing a notice of appeal within our tax system.

A final thought – when in dispute with the CRA, it pays to have an expert on your side.
