CRA’s Voluntary Disclosures Program allows Canadian to correct their taxes

Canada Revenue Agency’s (CRA) Voluntary Disclosures Program (VDP) allows Canadians to change under certain conditions a tax return without prosecution and penalties.

The process includes the following steps:

  • Fill out and sign Form RC199, Voluntary Disclosures Program (VDP) – Taxpayer Agreement, or write a letter with the same information as found on the form.
  • Submit your completed form using the submit documents online service now available through
  • My Account, My Business Account, and Represent a Client.
  • Log into My Account and click on “Submit documents” on the left hand navigation menu.
  • Select “I do not have a case or reference number,” and then select “Form RC199 – Taxpayer Agreement or a letter with the same information”.
  • Upload Form RC199 or your letter and provide a short file description.
  • After submitting the document(s), make sure to save the provided case/reference number on the “Submit documents – confirmation” page for your records.
  • If you need to add more documents, repeat the process using the same case/reference number as many times as you need to complete your disclosure.
  • Check your mail because the CRA will send you an acknowledgement letter after it receives your disclosure submission. The letter is normally sent within two weeks and will include information about the next steps in the process.

By applying to the CRA under the VDP, you might only pay the taxes you owe plus interest.

A valid disclosure has to meet all four of the following conditions:

  • a penalty would apply
  • it is voluntary, which means you make it before you are aware of the CRA taking any compliance action against you
  • the information is at least one year overdue
  • it includes all the relevant information.
