Canada Revenue Agency Compliance - Information - Part 1
First off, let me state that I am not an accountant or a lawyer, I am a business owner of a firm that performs research and development (computer
hardware/software, electronics and physics) and another firm that operates in the entertainment industry. I do have to deal with intellectual property
rights, NDA’s, contracts, patent and copyright law and have done so for the last 38 years in the course of operating my businesses as well as my
positions as an engineer, engineering manager or R&D director in other companies. That by no means makes me an expert, I’m just a business owner who
has had to operate within specific “legal” frameworks and who has gained “some” experience in these areas. So, always check with your
accountant and a lawyer before you do anything or at least do your own research. Consider this post to be opinions peppered with instruction, facts
and a number of CRA/BOC links and I am certainly not telling you what to do, but it appears we all have options.
I am starting this thread because I am on my sixth audit since 1996 and every time but once (I made a mistake that reduced my refund by about $2k),
the CRA ended up refunding my companies more than I initially claimed. Revenue Canada pisses me off, as it does so many other people but during this
present audit I decided to examine filing formal complaints for harassement. One of my past audits was actually a ten year audit from 1996 to 2005
which took roughly six months to complete in 2005/2006. The result of that $100k waste-of-taxpayer-money was that the CRA refused to prosecute
criminal malfeasance or fraud charges against government ministers and a university due to the scandal it would have created (there is a court case),
but nothing changed in my taxes. They had to pay me the original refund based on my books, receipts, ledgers and their findings during the audit.
Still, a waste of taxpayer money and criminal dereliction of duty by the CRA all the way to the minister of finance according to the manager at the
During my search I found out additional information that may be beneficial to many. All links in this document are links relating to the Canada
Revenue Agency (CRA) or the Tax Ombudsman at the Bank of Canada (the BOC, one of the most heinous criminal organizations, just like the Federal
Reserve) and all PDF files I have linked are on the related websites and can be acquired through the HTML pages if you don't want to access the
PDF’s directly. I am not finished researching yet, but what follows is the information I have found so far. If anyone has additional information on
tax regulation compliance cost submission and invoicing, please submit it in this thread.
In the United States similar rules/laws may apply. I hope that people from the US research this possibility as well, I can just imagine what
would happen if the IRS/FED received 100+ million complaints, invoices and FOIA requests.
I hope someone will make a companion thread based on
the IRS, the FED and the US.
First off, the item I think most people will be interested in, is the probable ability for the personal taxpayer and/or business to invoice
CRA/Revenue Canada for Compliance and Audit costs. Now what are the reasons for invoicing the CRA according to the BOC?
1. Compliance: To comply with existing tax laws and collect or dispense revenues as prescribed by the existing legislation. In other words, the
direct time and costs applicable in real terms for maintaining records and executing the requirements of compliance on behalf of the CRA, even when
not under an audit.
2. Audit Costs: Those costs directly related to an Audit by the CRA, meaning time spent in the collection and collimation of records, ledgers, filing,
accounting or legal costs, interpretation of tax law, meetings both direct and over the phone. Again, costs in real terms.
3. The storage of records relating to compliance with the tax code and the CRA or the criminal code relating to the non-destruction of evidence
relating to the CRA or its investigations.
The CRA generally doesn't like to inform people or businesses that you can apparently bill them back for the hoops they make you jump through, but
there is a BOC tax website that gives you a bit of the information. Funny that this information comes from the Bank of Canada. Who would have thunk
it, eh, criminals giving their victims information or maybe it’s just a red herring?

As I said, pretty funny that the Taxpayer Ombudsman's Office runs out of the Bank of Canada, criminals controlling criminals. It kind of let's you
know, in no uncertain terms,
whom the CRA works for and it’s not the Canadian government (meaning the people), but rather the Bank of Canada
(literally owned, operated and controlled by the IMF and Goldman Sachs). That means that the CRA (Revenue Canada or the Canadian Revenue Agency) is a
collection agency for the IMF in a very literal sense and has been provided the ability under legislation to “legally” extort Canadians. Anyway,
you can send your tax complaints to the ombudsman’s office at;
