CRA appeals

I’ve done a few in my day. The CRA disallows a key deduction and this results in your tax bill going through the roof. What to do? There is the T400A appeal. This is a formal process that starts with a clear articulation of your reasons why the refusal should be reversed.

The important point is that the appeal must be accompanied by supporting documentation. The appeal must be sent to your local CRA appeals office. Usually the appeal determination could take from 3-6 months.

I’ve done a few for tuition deductions as well as disability appeals. They take a long time and the T400A appeal must be crafted carefully.
