Albert Ayoub of Toronto, Ontario, pleaded guilty in the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton, to one count of failing to file the 2008 corporate income tax return for By Kennedy Flooring Inc. and one count of failing to file the 2006 corporate income tax return for Libanco By Kennedy Flooring Inc.

Taxpayers who have not filed returns for previous years, or who have not reported all of their income, can still voluntarily correct their tax affairs. They may not be penalized or prosecuted if they make a valid disclosure before they become aware of any compliance action being initiated by the CRA against them. These taxpayers may only have to pay the taxes owing, plus interest. More information on the Voluntary Disclosures Program (VDP) can be found on the CRA's Web site at www.cra.gc.ca/voluntarydisclosures.
