Notional Assessments (When the CRA decides on their own what you owe them)

If you are behind on filing tax returns, the CRA can, at any time, use any information about you to create a notional assessment. A notional assessment is where the CRA essentially creates a tax return on your behalf and estimates the tax debt that you owe. It can then act to collect what it believes is owed. Farber Tax Solutions has years of experience in resolving tax problems and communicating and negotiating with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

  • Our team of ex-CRA, legal, and accounting professionals review your situation and form a plan to get you tax compliant, reduce the amount of tax debt you owe, decrease or eliminate interest charges and penalties, and put a stop to CRA enforcement action
  • We have successfully helped thousands of businesses and individuals become tax compliant and resolve tax issues
  • Free consultations with an ex CRA tax expert


What To Do If You Have Been Notionally Assessed

If you have received a notional assessment from the Canada Revenue Agency, or if you are behind on filing income taxes, trust the professionals at Farber Tax Solutions to deliver the most favourable outcome possible for you.

At any time, even if you have been notionally assessed, you can still file your returns. However, when you have a tax problem, time is not on your side. The speed at which you file your late returns, as well as the accuracy of the information you submit, is crucial. Certain expenses, such as HST expenses, cannot be written off after a period of time has lapsed, so you will want to resolve your issue as quickly and accurately as possible.

That’s where Farber Tax Solutions can help.
