Taxpayers' Ombudsman Report: Right to Know

Canadian Taxpayers may be interested in reviewing the Taxpayers' Ombudsman recently-released report entitled The Right to Know.

In the report the Ombudsman makes recommendations concerning which the Minister of National Revenue has asked the Canada Revenue Agency (the CRA) to develop a plan of action and make the necessary changes.

According to the CRA website, the Minister has stated:

"Our government is committed to ensuring the fair and equitable treatment of all Canadian taxpayers. That is why we developed and introduced the Taxpayer Bill of Rights and created the position of Taxpayers' Ombudsman to report to the Minister with recommendations on how the Canada Revenue Agency can better serve Canadians. The role of the Ombudsman is to ensure that the Canada Revenue Agency is respecting the rights of taxpayers as per the Taxpayer Bill of Rights, and I am pleased to accept and act on the recommendation in his report."
