Tax Audit

The Canadian tax system is based on the principle of self-assessment. This means that taxpayers must declare their income themselves and determine the income tax they owe

To ensure that this system works, the government must regularly identify some statements to check their compliance with law. That is the reason for tax audits, which worry, rightly or wrongly, many business managers and professionals. The measures used by tax officers can range from a mere telephone call to the invasion of the taxpayers' privacy.

At DUPUIS PAQUIN, our objective is to provide you with advice and guidance that will help you come out of a tax audit stronger.
