THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW CRA MAKES MISTAKES, MAKES NO APOLOGIES AND MAKES FALSE ASSESSMENTS AGAINST TAX PAYERS. CRA THEN HIDE BEHIND THE STATUTES OF LIMITATIONS TO AVOID HAVING TO RECTIFY THEIR GROSS NEGLIGENCE.

HOW MANY TIMES DOES THIS OCCUR TO OTHER PEOPLE? SHOULD THIS NOT BE DEALT WITH BY OUR GOVERMENT WHEN CLEAR ABUSES TAKE PLACE.

Correspondence to, and from, Mr. Deszpoth regarding Input Tax Credits that CRA owe to the above complany  WHICH ARE APPARENTLY "STATUTE BARRED" against OUR GOVERMENT NOTWITHSTANDING
THEIR CLERICAL ERROR.

Apparently one Law for us and one for them.

Dear Mr. Deszpoth;

A clear CRA - Keying Error under revealed under Freedom of Information (FOI)

I am referring to our various correspondences regarding the CRA keying error on the company and business number noted above.

You will recall the keying error was for a period in 2007 and we have been trying to establish how this liability arose ever since. We could never receive adequate responses from CRA and in particular, Ms. Dowdall at CRA TSO Belleville did not investigate nor respond and was clearly very unhelpful.  All our back-up documentation from the CRA files has been received under the FOI we have received. I note from FOI that you were sending correspondence to the wrong address. This address was never the Company's address.

We wrote to Mr. Mike Wilson finally on June 8, 2014 and presumably as his superior, you responded on June 19, 2014. Your letter refers to numerous attempts by phone and mail to contact us, but in fact we believe it was the other way around. In the first paragraph of your letter, you indicate that you reviewed the information we provided regarding the negligent keying error at Canada Revenue Agency and refused to adjust the return due to STATUTORY LIMITATIONS.

Subsequently, on August 8, 2014, we responded to you, refuting your allegations and requesting a review. Unfortunately, CRA frequently ignores correspondence and this is just a further example of this.

In essence, what you have told us is that Canada Revenue Agency employees can make a mistake and not be held accountable. By a grossly negligent keyboard operator in one of your offices, you have created a Tax liability for this company and of this there does not seem to be any dispute.

You appear to want to settle this matter by declaring the company still liable for this non-existent debt which you can do nothing about because it is Statute Barred.

I am aware that there are various limitations in Canada in connection with debts and even Taxpayer amendments to returns. Frankly, I do not think there is any statute that covers instances where Gross Negligence has occurred. You yourself at CRA use this quite liberally when dealing with Taxpayers. Gross Negligence in your eyes in those instances has no time expiry date.

Gross Negligence, in whatever situation, is simply Gross Negligence. Whether it is CRA, a private individual or a public corporation, I am not sure that the Canada Revenue Agency can commit negligence and create a debt accidentally and then force the company or person to pay. This would not represent any form of justice. I am asking you once again to review this file and agree that Gross Negligence cannot be Statute Barred. I am disappointed quite frequently that CRA does not respond to our various correspondences. Having this in mind, I have decided to post our correspondences to CRA on my website www.toensurecompliance.ca. To be fair to both sides, I will also post your response. If no response is received, I will post a blank page, stating: "No Reply Received".

I would be grateful if you would get back to me as soon as possible. If you feel able to review our request and strike out this ridiculous, absurd and negligent assessment and rebate all the penalties and interest etc. that you have applied. Remove the writ and the lien on the company and forward a cheque for the GST Rebate that was applied for in this return.

Frankly, Mr. Deszpoth I think it outrageous that an Agency of the Government of Canada can:

1.       Make a mistake internally by a CRA employee.

2.       Refuse to rectify the mistake.

3.       Raise a TAX LIABILITY for this Company that is not valid.

4.       Lien the Company's assets and Bank Account.

5.       Refuse to reverse the negligent error despite numerous requests over the years.

6.       Persue the Company for a NON EXISTANT TAX DEBT & HARRASS ITS DIRECTORS.

7.       Hide behind the STATUTES of TIME LIMITATIONS even though CRA are clearly incorrect & in the wrong.

Quite honestly this speaks VOLUMES about how the CANADA REVENUE AGENCY treats the Citizens of Canada as a matter of course. This simple matter goes a long way to proving our points about ABUSE OF POWER on CRA dealings with our Companies.

I await your early response.
