Beware of tax myths
Canadians and their tax advisers sometimes disagree with the CRA about the meaning of tax laws. These disagreements are normal and can be resolved.
However, over the past few years certain groups have begun publicizing incorrect and misleading advice about tax laws and the legal obligation to pay taxes.
People who accept such incorrect advice and fail to comply with the law could expose themselves to serious financial and legal problems. For more information, see Debunking tax myths.
The CRA and the Department of Finance Canada
When you're searching government websites for tax-related information, your search will be easier if you're aware of the different roles played by the CRA and by the Department of Finance Canada.
The CRA administers tax laws, but we don't make or develop fiscal policies or tax laws.
- As a rule, the CRA Web site is where you'll find information about what the current tax laws say and how they're interpreted and applied.
The Department of Finance Canada is responsible for federal tax policy and legislation. The Minister of Finance and Parliament decide on tax amounts and how to calculate them.
- As a rule, the Department of Finance Canada website is where you'll find information about proposed changes to tax laws, proposed tax cuts or increases, studies about the effects of taxation, and possible future tax policies. You may want to consult that department's news releases and speeches.
- Details of legislation proposed or enacted during the current session of Parliament are available on the Parliament of Canada website.
Tax legislation is also developed by individual provinces and territories.
