CRA bill unreasonable?
so earlier this year a place where i did an experience/unpaid internship when i was a fresh out of school several years back calls me out of the blue, tells me they want to update everyone's info...and so i did.
later I was contacted by CRA for a EI/CPP rulings dating back to 2016 and claimed i was a paid employee during my time there. I appealed with a short online questionnaire, then they sent a more detailed questionnaire to fill out. Sent that back, didn't hear anything.
2-3 months passed, and le tax man abruptly bills me $2000 interest inlucded with a re-assessment that has nothing to do with EI/CPP...and expect me to pay it in 2 weeks (fed/prov tuition and edu carryfwd amounts)
is it because CRA realized they had no grounds to reassess me based on the info i gave and they decided to try and muscle me into paying something else?
i can do a formal dispute again, but I'm just wondering if people have run into bizzare situations like this before. Why are they even going after 2016 credits weeks away from 2019?
