CRA Tax Liens: What Are They & What You Can Do


The CRA (Canada Revenue Agency, formerly known as Revenue Canada) has many strong collection powers that it will use to collect unpaid tax debt. One of these CRA enforcement tools is to register a lien against a property.

  • A tax lien can be placed on a home, real estate holdings, and any other property
  • A lien prevents an individual from selling or refinancing a property until the tax debt is paid
  • The CRA has no obligation to notify an individual if it places a lien on a property
  • The CRA does not require a court order to bring legal action against you

Those who have unpaid tax debt must ensure that they respond to the CRA properly and arrange for a payment plan to resolve an unpaid tax debt situation before the agency takes action, such as placing a lien on a property. The tax experts at Farber Tax Solutions have the experience needed to successfully negotiate with the CRA.

CRA Lien Removal


The most straightforward way to remove CRA liens is to pay the tax debt that is owed. However, due to the fact that the CRA charges large interest and penalty charges on outstanding tax debt, it can be costly and difficult to pay such tax debts.

In addition, the CRA is often very hesitant to agree to long-term payment arrangements, especially when a tax debt has been outstanding long enough that the agency considers placing a lien on a property.

Even in situations where the CRA agrees to a payment plan, it does not do so without requiring significant financial disclosure from the taxpayer. Before providing the CRA with any of this sensitive financial information, contacting an experienced tax professional is strongly advised. When dealing with the CRA, a prompt response is important, but a correct response is crucial.
