CRA Collections Enforcement Action
The CRA has the authority to take legal action against tax debtors. Many of its collection powers can be exercised without a court order. Depending on the severity of the debt and the history of the taxpayer, the CRA can exercise a wide variety of their enforcement powers to collect any tax arrears, such as imposing garnishments, bank freezes, liens and asset seizure.
What Kind of Legal Action Can CRA Take?
Garnishments redirect the cash flow of a taxpayer to the CRA. For wage earners with tax debt, the CRA can impose wage garnishments of up to 50% of employment income. Self-employed individuals can face full 100% garnishments against their company’s receivables. In addition, the CRA can also garnish the wages and/or dividends of an owner-manager, crippling their cash flow. Our staff are experts in getting garnishments lifted or reduced, allowing room and time to negotiate payment arrangements with the CRA.
Also known as a Requirement to Pay, a bank freeze allows the CRA to seize control of a taxpayer’s bank account, redirecting any existing and future funds to the CRA. Often done without warning, the CRA uses the element of surprise to prevent taxpayers from shifting funds before they can be captured. Our staff are experts in removing bank freezes and can minimize the impact of your tax problem on daily life.
CRA often places liens on the property of a tax debtor to secure its interests. This prevents taxpayers from refinancing or selling their property until the debt is paid. Our team has successfully arranged for the deferral and postponement of liens on behalf of our clients to allow them to sell or refinance their property in a timely manner.
Seizure of Assets or a Writ of Seizure and Sale
A Writ of Seizure and Sale allows the CRA to take possession of taxpayer property or assets and sell them to pay off existing debts. Asset seizure can include your home, rental or vacation properties, or business property. Our team are experts in negotiating with the CRA to prevent a writ from being registered against your property.
How to Deal with CRA Enforcement Action
Being faced with enforcement action can be intimidating. If you have received a legal warning, notice of assessment, or other correspondence from the CRA indicating that you owe taxes, it may be time to seek help. We recommend dealing with the CRA through a representative to demonstrate that the situation is being taken seriously and that you are actively taking steps to resolve your debt.
