CRA Snitch Line 1.866.809.6841.
Even go into a store and get charged tax, but the teller never runs it through the cash register? They do it because they’re keeping the extra tax for themselves. Call the snitch line. Or, you go to buy something and they only accept cash… Be wary.
Does your neighbour brag about how much money he makes under the table and lives way better than you do? Call the snitch line.
Does your ex-spouse not want to file their tax returns because it would mean they would have to increase child support payments?!? Then call the snitch line.
This line is a direct link into the CRA Audit department and they use these “tips” to recover funds from professional tax avoiders.
Key words the CRA likes to hear includes;
Their names, their address, an amount of unreported income greater than, say $50K, maybe a second set of books, or 2nd property in the name of their cat…
It never hurts to call.
It always hurts to not call.
This line is anonymous and believe it or not, the majority of “tips” come from exes who are left holding the bag while their ex-spouses are living it up.
I figured I would post this since it is the most frequently asked question I get. Yes a line exists and yes it gets acted on… and fast if the dollar amount to be recovered is high.
