TORONTO, Aug. 3, 2018 /CNW/ - The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) announced today that charges of fraud have been laid against Vanessa Jane Canlas, Jane General Services Ltd., and 2322944 Ontario Ltd. (operating as Tri-Han Staffing Solution). A warrant was issued for the arrest of Vanessa Jane Canlas.
The criminal charges allege that during the years 2011 to 2015, Vanessa Jane Canlas, Jane General Services Ltd., and 2322944 Ontario Ltd. attempted to defraud the Government of Canada and evade over $1.6 million in income tax and GST/HST. It is alleged that the corporations collected but failed to remit GST/HST and also failed to report income for tax purposes. In addition, it is alleged that Vanessa Jane Canlas failed to report income on her personal tax returns.
All case-specific information above was obtained from the court records.
The CRA takes any allegation of non-compliance very seriously and investigates suspected cases of tax evasion, fraud and other serious violations of tax laws. When individuals and businesses make deliberate and intentional decisions to not comply with the Acts administered by the CRA, they place an unfair burden on law-abiding taxpayers and businesses and jeopardize the integrity of Canada's tax system.
For the five-year period of April 1, 2012, to March 31, 2017, the courts have convicted 408 taxpayers of serious tax related crimes. This involved $122 million in federal tax evaded and court sentences totaling approximately $44 million in court fines and 3,103 months in jail.
The CRA has set up a free subscription service to help Canadians stay current on the CRA's enforcement efforts.
