After posting my taxes on Sunday, I was wondering how things would go with my return. I am currently in a reassessment for the previous tax year, so what would the CRA do about this?
It did not take long, as they replied on-line with a message asking for receipts for the tax year for the exact areas where I am being reassessed for the previous tax year. This actually makes perfect sense, to me. This process is called a pre-assessment, which seems to imply, they want to verify my claims before processing.
Given my previous year reassessment is still in process, I will include all the information from that process, just to be thorough. I am attempting to make the same claims that I am having reassessed, so it is better to give too much information, than not enough.
Remember, in these situations, always have a complete cover letter. The cover letter must identify the process identifier, and should inventory all the documentation you are sending. I am also having my wife check what I am sending, it never hurts to have another set of eyes check things for you.
The only interesting part is that they are asking for receipts for my charitable donations, which has nothing to do with my reassessment. The value has gone up, but I am curious as to why they are asking for that as well.
What to Do?
I will be submitting them all on-line (for speed), and shall see what comes of this.
This is all part of the whole tax process, but does seem to be how this year is going for me as well (i.e. things that can get complicated, do get complicated).
Remember to keep those receipts too!
