Subject Line: Tax mistakes to avoid

Dear XXX,

Even the most conscientious tax preparers and clients make mistakes when submitting their reviews.

A few pointers for making the most out of tax season: collect your paperwork throughout the year in a folder for easy access. If you’ve lost a slip, institutions like universities will issue duplicates upon request.

But sometimes that’s not enough.

I’d like to set up a meeting to discuss how to handle an audit or return review.

Before we meet, I’d like you to take a look at a few articles that lay the groundwork for the discussion we’ll be having:

Get out of trouble with Revenue Canada

Come clean with the CRA

What is alternative minimum tax?

Don’t forget, after you’ve submitted your return, keep a copy and all relevant documents in a safe, easy-to-remember place for at least six years.

No one likes to go through an audit. Let’s make sure you don’t have to.
