‘Very Small Number’ Of Taxpayers Don’t receive Warning About Debt Collection: Ombudsman

A new report from Canada’s Taxpayers’ Ombudsman found that a “very small number” of taxpayers do not receive warning from the Canada Revenue Agency about debt collection, but many more do not understand the consequences of not paying.

Taxpayers’ Ombudsman Sherra Profit also recommended that the CRA provide more information to taxpayers about payment arrangements and conduct a “fulsome” review of the debt collection process.
