In most cases the audit cannot go back more than 4 years.

And in fact records do not have to be kept for more than 6 years in most cases.

So an audit would not be done for those years.

Hello, in regards ***** ***** above. If I was to report $30,000 to $40,000 of income from 15 years ago this year, would there be a penalty for doing so? Basically I may have found that amount that was not claimed from 15 years ago. Would I be charged a yearly interest on that amount if I reported this now?
Canadian Tax Expert: Legal Ease, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

If you make a voluntary disclosure there would not be penalties.

There would be interest unfortunately.

Is there a lawyer / client confidentiality in place in the case of a government audit? Also, is this same confidentiality in
place with my accountant?
Canadian Tax Expert: Legal Ease, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

There is solicitor client privilege at all times between a lawyer and a client.

There is not the same privilege with an accountant.

So if you need this then see a tax lawyer.
