Every year, Canadians lose millions of dollars to scams that result in identity and financial theft. 

You as a taxpayer should be vigilant when you receive communication that claims to be from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) requesting personal information such as a social insurance number, credit card number, bank account number, or passport number. This could be either by telephone, mail, text message or email. 

These scams may insist to collect personal information so that you can receive a refund or a benefit payment. Communication could also involve threatening or coercive language to scare you into paying fictitious debt to the CRA. 

A most common way of communication in recent years is urging taxpayers to visit a fake CRA website and click on any of the links provided.

When you receive any communication regarding your tax return, you can always phone CRA or check My Account to be sure.
