The Case of the Notice of Assessment

A self-employed professional received a Notice of Assessment showing a higher balance owing than showing on the tax return. A sense of panic set in and a call to Scarrow Yurman & Co ensued.

We rolled up our sleeves to advocate on behalf of our client by intervening with Canada Revenue Agency. After comparing the Notice of Assessment with the tax return, we determined that CRA had charged Ontario tax instead of allocating the various provincial rates on the multijurisdictional federal tax return.

Scarrow Yurman & Co walked CRA through their errors on the various provincial tax forms. Our client was relieved when CRA reversed the extra tax and interest amounts.
