The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) received submissions from 170 individuals and organizations, including Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada), in response to its proposed Registration of Tax Preparers Program (RTPP). The CRA report, What We Heard, says the tax preparer community was highly engaged and provided meaningful, practical feedback that will contribute to the RTPP’s final design. \nThe report summarizes feedback from submissions and town halls as well as stakeholder meetings hosted by CPA Canada and other organizations. It also points out issues raised that need to be resolved to ensure the program’s success. These include:\n\n defining errors more precisely and clarifying the type of error that would be linked to tax preparers\n determining whether education or tax competency standards should be considered as part of the RTPP\n improving services and support for tax preparers to reduce errors\n\nCPA Canada continues to work with the CRA, professional accounting firms, tax preparation businesses and other stakeholders to help meet the CRA’s objectives while minimizing any additional complexity or red tape.\nView CPA Canada’s submission.
