Informant Leads Program

As announced in Economic Action Plan 2013, the CRA has launched the Offshore Tax Informant Program (OTIP) that offers financial awards to individuals with information about major cases of international tax non-compliance resulting in more than $100,000 of additional federal tax being assessed and collected. Please visit the OTIP website for more information, including how to make a submission.

Beware of fraudulent communications:
The CRA is warning Canadians that fraudulent emails purporting to be from the Agency are currently circulating. See examples of these scams.

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) takes abuse of Canada's tax laws very seriously. When an individual or business does not fully comply with tax legislation, an unfair burden is placed on law-abiding taxpayers and businesses and the integrity of Canada's tax base is jeopardized.

The mandate of the Informant Leads Program is to coordinate all leads that the CRA receives from informants, to determine if there is an element of non-compliance with tax legislation, and ensure that the information is reviewed and provided to the corresponding compliance program for appropriate enforcement action.
