Tax Tip - Don't get scammed!


OTTAWA, Jan. 15, 2020 /CNW Telbec/ - Did you get a suspicious email, phone call, letter, or text message from someone claiming to be us? Scammers pretending to be Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) employees often contact Canadians to trick them into paying fake debts.

To protect yourself from scams, it's important to know when and how the CRA might contact you. Here are some tips on how to identify if the CRA is trying to reach you:

The reasons we may call

The CRA may call if we previously wrote to you, or in any of these situations:

Make sure the caller is a CRA employee before handing over money or personal information on the phone

Double check the status of your tax account and make sure the CRA has your current address and email

When in doubt, ask yourself
