Here is an interesting article by Jamie Golombek entitled “A crazy tale of tax fraud”.  Unfortunately these types of unsophisticated schemes cost hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars.  They are referred to as receipting fraud.


There is another type of scheme that is far more costly it is referred to by CRA as “abusive gifting tax schemes”.  I have written on my site about those schemes.

Do you require legal advice with respect to Canadian or Ontario non-profits or charities?
