The Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) has tightened its inspection against tax evasion through cryptocurrencies. CRA has collected $54 million of cryptocurrency financial transactions made without a declaration up to the fiscal year 2023-2024. The compliance branch director general, Sahil Behal, said that about 400 audits regarding cryptocurrency have been entered into the process.

According to David Rotfleisch, a seasoned tax attorney, CRA’s efforts may represent a small step in line with the problem’s magnitude. He asserts that the sum that is reassessed is relatively low compared to the range of cryptocurrency transactions.  The CRA  introduced new methods to educate taxpayers, especially regarding popular digital currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum.
