Keep your Tax Information Safe

The CRA regularly issues warnings and tax alerts to advise taxpayers of fraudulent schemes and provides information to help Canadians keep their tax information secure and up to date. This information and advice is offered on the CRA Web site at for the easy reference of taxpayers. It includes advice on how Canadians can protect themselves from fraud by:

keeping personal information safe;
being wary of unsolicited phone calls or email;
registering for the My Account service;
being cautious when selecting a tax preparer, or tax advisor; and
seeking information and advice from trusted sources when something sounds too good to be true.
