Finance committee  In terms of the $444 million, zero. None of the $444 million will be going after salary—

Ted Gallivan

Finance committee  The only thing I would hypothesize, because I don't know the specific cases, is that even in our smaller space, for example, pharmacists who are accepting gift cards, we are increasingly going after an entire population. There was an issue with pharmacists who were asking for reb

Finance committee  We always use FTEs because sometimes officials like myself get in trouble between FTEs and people, but broadly speaking, it's at 200, and broadly speaking, we have 150 or 160 in the door, but there is turnover on a continuous basis. Overall, our audit function is 10,000 people, a

Finance committee  I'm going to come back to the question of scope that was raised before in terms of our focus. Roughly 10% of our audit, or 14,000 audits, are focused at people with a high net worth doing aggressive tax planning, and at multinationals. That yielded $8 billion last fiscal year in

November 24th, 2016Committee meeting

Finance committee  I think you're right to mention that. We do have a role to play in providing feedback to the Minister of Finance, and we do that on a yearly basis. It is our view that millions of Canadians are able to complete their tax returns in a few minutes using software. I, myself, used m

Finance committee  That is an excellent question. You are correct, legislative changes are essential. We do not control all the decisions. This is mainly under the purview of the Minister of Finance. I can confirm that we have made suggestions. The agency will continue to propose legislative chang

November 24th, 2016Committee meeting

Ted Gallivan

Finance committee  Thank you, Mr. Chair. First of all, I think the $500 million was per year over five years, so the budget 2016 announcement was for a total of $2.5 billion.

Finance committee  So it's a little better. It's roughly 6:1 in terms of return on investment. You've asked a very good question in terms of the breakdown in IT systems.

Ted Gallivan

Finance committee  There is definitely a focus on multinational enterprises, and we've made a significant investment there. Our return on investment in that space averages 20:1. However, we are also in the compliance business, so we are making significant investments in terms of promoters of tax sc

Finance committee  Thank you, Madam Minister. Mr. MacKinnon, I will speak more specifically about certain elements. Part of the investment has been allocated to telephone lines, in order to ensure that people receive a reply in an acceptable time frame. In the first quarter of this year, we noted

November 24th, 2016Committee meeting

Ted Gallivan

Finance committee  In our opinion, we need to start the tax return season as early as possible. It starts very early, but the fact that some information is not available, such as information from employers, prevents some taxpayers from obtaining their returns sooner. We are working with software d

Ted Gallivan

Finance committee  I think it varies on where the investment is made. For example, budget 2015 provided us $200 million, and we had roughly a four-to-one return on investment. But we were deliberately focusing on the underground economy, small and medium enterprises, in order to have a level play
