DioGuardi Tax Problem


If you are paid by salary, or a regular contractor of a firm, and the CRA knows where you work, a Requirement to Pay letter (RTP) can be sent to your employer demanding payment of a percentage of your salary/commissions/fees be paid directly to the CRA instead of to you. Your employer is by law required to comply. Some employers are unhappy to be under the scrutiny of the Taxman in this way, and clients have reported to us that they have lost their employment because of this.

The CRA will agree to withdraw the RTP when you come to suitable payment terms with them, likely for the full amount outstanding.  Your employer will then be free to pay your wages or fees directly to you without holdback.
