Neglectful Employee's at The Canada Revenue Agency Lisa Patrick
We need our federal or provincial government to appoint a personal taxpayers advocate that understands the tax system Or publicize the resolution process more.

Since April 2011 we have been having to push Canada Revenue Agency to complete tasks on a file that at conclusion is worth about $15,000 dollars in refunds to the taxpayer.

The employees of the Canada Revenue Agency that has handled the file have neglected their job duties on several occasions.  A blatant neglect by several employees by professionals that are supposed to know more about taxes than the taxpayer.
 
If it had not been for our long term relationship (20+ years) with the parents of the taxpayer we would have lost the trust of the taxpayer.

The taxpayer was even told on one occasions that we, the tax preparer had made mistakes and misdirected them as to the eligibility of the refund that was anticipated.

Canada Revenue Agency actually issued a notice of tax owing but not the tax refund.  Canada Revenue Agency actually made it appear that the taxpayer now owed the government $1600.00 and not that the Canada Revenue Agency owed them $15,000.00

The next time there is a federal election I would like to go public with this file.

Is there any provincial candidate that wants to help….


Calculate Your Home Renovation Tax Credit Lisa Patrick

How much can I spend so I receive that benefit?

Maximum allowed: $10,000
Minimum spend: $1,001
 

How much do I get Back?

Calculation:
$10,000 – $1,000 = $9,000

$9,000 X 15% = $1,350 Refund

 

 

 

 

ASK YOURSELF… HOW MUCH THE ALBERTA PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT IS GIVING US…. NOTHING!!!!
 

AND ASK, HOW MUCH IS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT GIVING BACK PER TAXPAYER $1350
-

$428(GST paid direct to government by sales for renos)
= $921.60 cost to federal government.

$ Gone When Someone Dies .. How to avoid This! Lisa Patrick

Many tax saving dollars are lost due to completing the final and estate return without consideration to illness as cause of death!  You may qualify for the disability tax credit !

This certificate T2201 provided by the government (www.cra.gc.ca <http://www.cra.gc.ca/> ) once completed by a medical practitioner, may result in up to 10 years tax refunds of approximately $2500 each.  YES, we have seen the cheques!
This credit may also be transferred to an individual that cared and supported the taxpayer with the illness.
