Bill Innes quoted in the Financial Post regarding Canada Revenue Agency gross negligence penalties

Bill Innes quoted in the Financial Post regarding Canada Revenue Agency’s use of gross negligence penalties : “Many of the cases involve people who never got refunds but were penalized just for claiming them . . . The upshot is that many of the penalties are windfalls for CRA even as they have severe results for taxpayers, particularly elderly ones.”  See the complete article at “Tax Court judge says CRA needs ‘early warning system’ to protect taxpayers from scam artists”, Financial Post, May 10, 2016.
