Tax Audit? Or Tax Investigation?

Are you being audited by the Canada Revenue Agency? Or are you being investigated?
 
A tax audit is a civil procedure conducted to ensure that the correct amount of tax has been reported and paid.
 
A tax investigation is an operation to determine if criminal wrongdoing has occurred and if criminal charges should be laid.
 
You can never be certain whether you are being audited or investigated so it is important that you have an experienced representative working on your behalf from Day One. Because sometimes what starts out as an audit can become a criminal investigation.
