Received a notice of reassessment? Don’t be surprised. Chances are you have been matched by the CRA’s “matching program”.


What is Matching Program?


Many Canadians may not know that the CRA has a state-of-the-art matching program. Every fall after the busy tax filing season, the matching program starts running ruthlessly. It systematically scans all tax returns and matches the information you reported on your return with the information reported by your employers, banks, investment companies, business partners, and any other third parties. The program also compares your tax return to that of your spouse or common-law partner. If you are running a business, there are more things to match, for example, your GST/HST returns, payroll deductions, corporate tax return, and etc.


What happens if it does not match?


If the tallies don’t match, you will be served with a notice of reassessment for additional taxes and interest if you missing any income. You may even be hit by a so called the “repeat failure to report income” penalty. And it is big – 20% of the income that was not reported. To be clear, it is not 20% of the amount of tax owed. Not passing the matching program can easily make you a candidate for the CRA’s Most Wanted list. Your returns will be scrutinized year after year.


Protect yourself


With the complex tax rules and robust taxman, you need a tax professional to take care of your tax. There are many tax preparers providing good services with reasonable fees. It is not worth spending the time struggling by yourself and taking the extra risks.
