TaxPayer Relief LettersHow the Taxpayer Relief Service Works
CRA Penalty and Interest Relief
Call or Click on the Contact us tab. Let us know a bit about your situation. If you’re e-mailing, include a contact phone number only. DO NOT include confidential information.
Once we understand the facts, we’ll be able to tell you the cost to write a relief letter. If you (or your client) are interested in purchasing our services we’ll start working. We’ll e-mail you an invoice when your relief application is ready. Once our invoice has been paid by e-transfer, the application text will be sent directly to you via e-mail in either WORD or PDF format. If you are an accounting or legal practitioner, you may pay by cheque via regular mail.
You’ll receive a clear, concise and compelling penalty and interest relief application. Usually within 24 hours! Applications for relief often require supplementary information. Canada Revenue Agency may ask you for Income and Expense, Asset and Liability statements, letters from medical practitioners, or other supporting information.
Success may depend on the taxpayer’s ability to provide supporting information. Relief requests are written as though the application is coming from the taxpayer. When it comes to Taxpayer Relief, in most cases, taxpayers themselves are their own best representatives.
Before you call, take a moment to familiarize yourself with some critical information. What tax years are involved? Roughly how much is owed in Tax, Penalty, Interest? Which revenue types are involved, Personal Income Tax, Corporate, Payroll, G/HST? ** Please note, a Gross Negligence Penalty levied by Canada Revenue Agency may require a Notice of Objection rather than a taxpayer relief application.
Once you have the relief text, you may want to include the CRA’s RC4288 form with it. That form can be found at http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/E/pbg/tf/rc4288/
If you’re looking for tax solutions concerning a CRA collections matter, consulting services are provided on an hourly basis.
