Rest assured that we can help you go up against the Canada Revenue Agency or Revenu Québec.

No matter how accurately you complete your taxes, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) or Revenu Québec (RQ) may review the deductions and credits you claimed, audit your return or require more information before they process it. With Audit Protection, we've got you covered if the CRA or Revenu Québec disputes your refund or the amount of taxes you owe.

Purchase Audit Protection when you download H&R Block Tax Software or after you complete your taxes online. For one low price, you'll get personalized assistance from a Tax Expert, regardless of how long your review process takes.

Terms and Conditions

We'll be there for you before and after your return is assessed

Audit Protection provides support for any reviews of your return that happen before or after the CRA or Revenu Québec has completed their final assessment. We'll also provide assistance within a year of purchase if the CRA or Revenu Québec audits your return.

We'll start by assigning your file to a Tax Expert for personal attention. Then, we'll help you manage the process with:

CRA / RQ correspondence management:

Your Tax Expert will explain why the CRA or Revenu Québec is requesting more information and ensure you've forwarded all required documents to the CRA or Revenu Québec. Your agent will also assist you in contacting the CRA or Revenu Québec if you need an extension.

Assessment & Audit Protection:

Your Tax Expert will prepare any documents that need to be submitted to the CRA or Revenu Québec. Your agent will also professionally recreate your return to ensure all your credits have been applied.
