Canada Revenue Agency: Important Update to the Voluntary Disclosures Program in Ontario and Nunavut

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - March 5, 2007) - As of March 5, 2007, the St. Catharines Tax Services Office, Enforcement Division will be the initial point of contact and intake centre for all Ontario and Nunavut disclosures and related enquiries. The Voluntary Disclosures Program promotes compliance by encouraging taxpayers to voluntarily correct previous omissions in their dealings with the Canada Revenue Agency.

Overall, the Voluntary Disclosures Program for Ontario and Nunavut will be handled by the St. Catharines, London and Peterborough-Kingston-Belleville Tax Services Offices - Enforcement Divisions.

The Canada Revenue Agency's Voluntary Disclosures Program policies, procedures and guidelines are not changing. What has changed is the arrangement for submitting a disclosure for Ontario and Nunavut's taxpayers. The purpose of this arrangement in Ontario and Nunavut is to facilitate better access to expertise and to enhance the efficient review of complex disclosures. The Canada Revenue Agency is committed to continue providing taxpayers with timely and excellent service in managing the Voluntary Disclosures Program.
