Let’s set the record straight about what a VDP is and, more important, is NOT.
In 2006, when the CRA shifted the VDP program from the jurisdiction of the Appeals Division into Enforcement – otherwise known as the Tax Police – as experienced tax litigation lawyers, we realized that a voluntary disclosure had suddenly become a trap for extracting incriminating information from unwary tax delinquents.
That’s when DioGuardi created our own unique approach that turns a VDP into the true legal protection of a DioGuardi Tax Amnesty.
In no time at all, the internet was filled with a swarm of tax lawyers and accountants who, without really knowing what we do, represented that they, too, could resolve your tax problems with a tax amnesty.
All you have to do, they say, is file a simple application and PRESTO! No prosecution. No penalties. No problem.
