How much more absurd, outrageous and appalling can FATCA get?
A six month old baby received the FATCA letter from TD in February. So Now CRA Going After Infants?It is time for Canada to refuse to surrender (Baby Elle) and other law abiding Canadians to a foreign bully under pretense of combating tax evasion.
And Elizabeth Thompson wrote Baby Girl Drawn Into Into CRA-IRS Information Sharing Controversy.
“I was totally shocked that the Canada Revenue Agency and the IRS would be interested in an eight-month-old who barely has any money in her account,” said Erika, who spoke to iPolitics on the condition that her last name and her daughter’s name not be used. “It seems a little bit ludicrous to me.”
It’s more than “a bit” ludicrous!
Baby Elle is their granddaughter of Somerfugl, who some of you will remember from the early days at Brock. Somerfugl, Tiger and I first consulted Joe Arvay in March, 2012.
Somerfugl told me about Baby Elle’s FATCA letter. I wrote the OpEd for iPolitics and they assigned Elizabeth Thonmpson to also write her news story.
