When discussing a voluntary disclosure in Canada, there are a number of processes and a lot of due diligence required in order to be granted extensions on tax deadlines in any given calendar month. To do this, a tax payer must notify the Canada Revenue Agency with notice of errors and mistakes at any given time in order to amend the complaint that there are errors in the documentation. This takes place after the tax payer decides there are errors in their paperwork that must be filed according to the law. This paperwork will amend previous egregious errors and will reinstate new tax payer records as per the voluntary disclosure. In order to qualify for the voluntary disclosure, a citizen may be anyone who can file a claim. Filing claims will help pay off interest due to the government. Paying interest with the voluntary disclosure will alleviate some pressure due to missing or mistaken paperwork errors in writing. To file a claim with the voluntary disclosure Revenue Agency, a citizen must must complete form RC199 and mail their subscription papers into the proper address. Certain people will sent it to an address in British Columbia, others will send it to Montreal locations. Anonymous disclosures are also possible to fix a record that is broken. In order to submit an anonymous change of form to correct paperwork, a postal code is necessary in order to determine geographical location for the Voluntary disclosure Program. If the paperwork is submitted, the committee will notify the sender in writing prior to approval or denial, and will allow time to see if the decision is made. In order to receive this notice, a name must be given in the voluntary disclosure. 

Certain individuals are eligible for the Voluntary disclosure while other businesses are eligible as well. There are eight hundred numbers that people can call in order to determine which paperwork to file first as prescribed by the policies and procedures in the voluntary disclosure program. There are certain limits to tax years and how many hears the VDP will go back in time. In fact, there is no limit to these numbers as the agency is waiting to get all tax years set straight for the record in order to complete a more accurate chart of numbers for the tax payer's years of giving. Also, interest is due based upon the amount of time that has passed that the tax payer has not paid the taxes due upon completion and submission of the aforementioned voluntary disclosure forms immediately. If the fees and tax money is not collected, more interest will accrue and will be due immediately in full to the tax agency. If you disagree with the decision made upon your tax file, you may upon personal request write to the tax centre and agree upon a second review of your tax file in order to get an appealed decision. 

Certain types of disclosures can be disclosed to the tax agency in the voluntary disclosure program within these parameters. Upon completion and submission of all forms, there must be valid proof of identification in order to receive proper feedback to achieve maximum refund or balance due for each tax year. In order to submit a document, there are certain types of information that can be disclosed for tax purposes. These are including but not limited to other personal income or business income, unreported or missing tax information, omitted by error or mistake tax information including income, dates of employment, etc. There are also late-filed applications that were completed in previous tax years as well as other documents that were filed beyond the deadline and considered late in all facets. These documents can be disclosed through the voluntary disclosure and will be utilized to correct tax records for each individual tax payer. However, once these forms are submitted, the tax and interest becomes due immediately and if it is not collected, will accrue more interest from the date of application. A valid disclosure must be complete, in all forms and submissions. A valid disclosure may also include a penalty for being late as well as paying more interest per the Canada Revenue Agency through the voluntary disclosure program.
