How Far Back Can CRA Audit?

Under the Income Tax Act, the CRA has four years from the date on your Notice of Assessment to go back and conduct an audit. However, this rule does not apply where the CRA believes tax offences have taken place. The CRA has the discretion to look further back if there is reason to believe offences have been committed or if one has been convicted of an offence, such as tax evasion.
