CPA Canada Welcomes Tax Fairness Announcement

TORONTO, June 26, 2013 /CNW/ - The Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) applauds efforts by the federal government to ensure that all Canadian taxpayers are treated fairly.

The government today announced the addition of a new right to the Taxpayer Bill of Rights ensuring that taxpayers can lodge a service complaint about the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) without fear of reprisal.

"No one expects CRA to be perfect all the time, so issues involving Canadian taxpayers are going to occur," said Gabe Hayos, vice-president, taxation, CPA Canada. "The new measure will give Canadians added assurance that they can raise concerns with CRA relating to the country's tax system."

CPA Canada values its ongoing work as a trusted advisor to the government on the design of fair and effective tax legislation. CPA Canada has established numerous committees featuring the best tax minds from the country's largest accounting firms to assist with its advisory role. In addition, the organization is preparing the next wave of Canada's leading tax experts through a number of tax-related courses and conferences.

About CPA Canada

CPA Canada is the national organization representing the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) profession in Canada. The Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA) and The Society of Management Accountants of Canada (CMA Canada) created the organization on January 1, 2013, to support unification of the Canadian accounting profession under the CPA banner. CPA Canada is responsible for providing services to CAs and CMAs on behalf of CICA and CMA Canada as well as to CPAs and CGAs participating in the unification effort. CPAs will serve the public interest across all sectors of the economy with integrity, sound ethical practices, disciplined regulation and proven strategic management and financial expertise. Accounting bodies representing almost 90 per cent of Canada's professional accountants are committed to unification or have already merged under the CPA banner.
