Tax Refund Scams

One of my clients forwarded me an email from Canada Revenue Agency this morning.  It said she was entitled to a refund.  If you get one of these emails, delete it immediately.  Do not click where it says to access the refund form.

Canada Revenue Agency never corresponds with taxpayers by email.

Here is what the email looks like:


After the last annual calculations of your fiscal activity we have determined that you are eligible to receive a tax refund 521$.

Please submit the tax refund and allow us 3-7 days to process.

A refund may be delayed for various reasons. For example submitting invalid records or applying after the deadline.
To access the form for your tax refund, please “click here”
