Toronto Star reports “Tax preparer becomes fugitive in fraud case” involving charity receipting
Posted under News | What's New from the Charities Directorate of CRA | Avoiding 'Charity' Scams
The Toronto Star covered the story of a tax preparer from Vaughan, Ontario who is a fugitive after having prepared thousands of tax returns with fraudulent charitable donation receipts amounting to millions of dollars. Most interesting is that the CRA cannot release a photo of the woman even though she is a fugitive. I think S. 241 of the Income Tax Act (confidentiality provisions) needs to be modified to allow CRA to release more information on charities and now tax preparer fugitives. I have sent submissions to Finance on that and lets wait and see.
