Do you have problems with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA)?
Do you owe the CRA money?
Are you behind on your personal (T1) tax filings?
Are you a business owner and you have fallen behind on payroll, GST/HST or Corporate Tax (T2) returns?
Has the CRA registered a lien against a property you own?
Have you transferred and asset and the CRA is assessing a 3rd party for your debts?
Are there garnishments on you bank account or against your wages?
Do you own a business and the CRA is contemplating Director’s liability?
Is the CRA taking you to court, and you just don’t understand if you have a case or not?
Does any of this make sense to you?
It’s complicated, it’s time sensitive and it’s extremely frustrating that the CRA would rather force you, or your business into bankruptcy that work with you, isn’t it?
Here is what you need to know before you can do anything to solve these problems:
- If you search online using any keywords related to CRA, tax, debt, or urgency, you might wind up here (you can thank me later), or you might wind up at a trustee. Bankruptcy firms have covered the internet with keywords aimed to make you think that the best and only option for you, is bankruptcy or a consumer proposal. While it might be, there are SO many other options!!! You don’t need a trustee to put you in bankruptcy in order to remove a RTP, when asking the CRA to remove it might be the way to go.
- Just like the phone scams claiming to be from the CRA, or wanting to clear your ducts, there are many “Tax Solutions” firms out there disguised as your ideal solution, when they want your money, your trust and then you accept their advice that bankruptcy is the best option for you. You can identify these firms this way:
- They buy followers on Facebook, Twitter and other social media accounts they operate.
- They write blog posts not intended to help you, but to scare you.
- They refer to the CRA as being bad, evil, and as the “Tax Man.” That approach is proven to never work. Even if you detest the CRA, telling them that won’t help your case.
- They hide their true intentions; either that they are part of a Trustee in Bankruptcy or by calling themselves fun names, to distract you from who they are and who the owners are.
- You need to know what the CRA wants from you, and how to go about fixing it. If you don’t know how the debt came about or what the CRA can, will, or have done to you already, then you cannot fix it, or have someone fix it for you, and,
- You need to know what will happen to you / your company / your family, in the instance where you decide to; do nothing, pay the balance, file the returns, fully comply with the CRA or choose bankruptcy / consumer proposal.
Without knowing answers to the above 4 questions, you cannot properly fix your tax problems once and for all.
If the “solution” to your 5, 10, 15 or 20-year tax problem can be fixed in one meeting and for a fee, what exactly are you getting?
Tax problems that take years to establish, sometime take years to resolve. Considering some of the alternatives, it’s worth it to know that your CRA problems have been resolved and you are not exchanging a CRA tax problem for a bankruptcy / consumer proposal problem.
