The Canada Revenue Agency (the Canadian income tax department) issued a press release on November 25, 2004 advising that it will reassess taxpayers who make charitable donations through leveraged donation programs. While CRA may not be correct in its analysis of the programs, any taxpayer who participates in such plans should do so knowing a CRA challenge will inevitably follow.
