Worried About an Audit?
We Can Help.

Did you know more than 2 million* Canadians get assessed every year?

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 (RQ) 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 a full year 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

Your online Tax Expert will explain why the CRA/RQ is requesting more information and ensure you have all the required documents. Your online Tax Expert will also assist you in contacting the CRA/RQ if you need an extension.

Document Preparation

Your online Tax Expert will prepare any documents required by the CRA/RQ and will personally review your return to ensure you prepared your taxes correctly.
