Worried about an audit? We can help.

Over 2 million* Canadians get assessed every year. We’ve got you covered if it happens to you.


Rest assured we can help you prepare for a tax audit or reassessment.

No matter how long you spend on your taxes and how accurately you complete your return, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) or Revenu Québec may still review and audit your return. With our Audit Protection, we’ll stay by your side if the government disputes your refund or the amount you owe. By purchasing Audit Protection, you’ll get personalized assistance from an online Tax Expert, regardless of how long the review takes.

We’ll be there for you before and after you’re assessed.

With Audit Protection, we’ll provide support for seven years after purchase for any audits or reviews of your return. We’ll start by assigning your file to an online Tax Expert for personal attention. Then, we’ll help you manage the process with:

Correspondence management.

The Tax Expert assigned to you will help explain any mail you have received from the CRA/Revenu Québec on why they might be requesting more information.

Document preparation.

We’ll also be here to help review your return to make sure it’s right, as well as to help clarify and validate any changes the government makes to your return or tax owing.
