The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) warns Canadians to not be misled by the tax protest movement or their schemes. Often accompanied by products or claims too good to be true, tax protesters may try to mislead you by claiming that as a “natural person”, you are exempt from income tax obligations.
Criminal courts have ruled this theory to be not only illogical, but also illegal. Taxpayers contribute to important Canadian social programs, from which all Canadians benefit. Refusing to pay your taxes will lead to serious consequences, including fines and jail time, and the RCMP will pursue those who participate or promote in tax protesting schemes.
The CRA advises all Canadians to seek a second opinion from reputable tax professionals on important tax matters. Feel free to speak to your RLB Advisor today at 1-866-822-9992. Don’t let this happen to you!
