Tax auditor Steve Gal (currently in Toronto now) mishandled my audit, lost original documents, lied to me. I have a witness who Steve called to verify some documents, and lied to that witness about the reason he was calling to start with. Steve did not even mention my name in that conversation.
My witness wasn't a witness at the time, but later (my witness) told me that he had no idea Steve was calling about me! Steve asked about some other company not relating to me, and some other persons' name that wasn't related to me! (or my audit!)

Then Steve rejected the evidence I gave him based solely on that phone testimony!

1) Under what grounds was the evidence dismissed?

Next subject matter is the casino. I went daily, I have proof from bank statements I went daily. I even got a letter from a head Fallsview Casino manager showing my earnings. All this evidence was also rejected.

2) Why ? Under what grounds, again?

I have a memory stick containing 2 audio recordings when I knew I was being lied to by Steve. Steve and his Supervisor are on that recording; However it is only Steve Gal that is responsible in my case. He fooled his supervisor into believing Steve's theory instead of the truth and evidence brought forward.

I talked to the director in St. Catharines RE: Steve Gal lying and mistreating my audit and I wanted a senior officer; someone with more experience. I never got that, I was told to leave.
My file was closed.

I appealed the decision, and after 78 weeks waiting for my appeal officer (Paul Harvey) to call, he had the file for 1 week before sending to collections.

Just last week (Oct 2014) I talked to Paul Harvey and asked why he did not spend more time on my file; He responded basically saying whatever Steve had "on me" looked good. In my opinion appeals is just an underwriter, cross the T's and dot the i's, not an actual appeal, it's just a waste of time. (And we pay Paul how much a year to underwrite auditors?)

Now Steve is in Toronto like I mentioned. Steve needs to be investigated by internal affairs; He is corrupt and not honest. He's the kind of person who will talk his way out of anything. He does not belong working in Canada Revenue Agency. CRA and it's officials should be honest and show integrity.

To update this thread; I had a professional look at my evidence that Steve Gall was the last person to handle, they pointed out that my evidence has been tampered with. Steve Gall left the room to photocopy my evidence, within this time he purposely covered up a stapled debit slip; you can see because he gave me a photocopy, not the original back. On the photocopy you can see at the top corner shadow where the staple was. There's also another tamper indicator where you can see a straight faint line/shadow in the middle of the page, suggesting the tamper actually happened in this way.
I went to Internal Affairs in 2013; and escalated the Proof of Tampering; and it was dismissed because that "evidence" was already looked at in 2013; but because I mis-worded that evidence as "Missing Document", rather "Evidence Tampering" it never got a second chance.

I'm in the process of bringing all my evidence to my collections officer, hopefully the situation will resolve itself soon.

I contacted OPP after I was told about the tampering, and I was told to wait for the Internal Affairs case to be resolved first. A follow up call with Maura Butko she had no idea about my complaint and told me she handed it off to someone else; She said she would have Michele LeClair call me the next day. About a week later no call; I looked up Michele's name and it said she's no longer at CRA. I took a screen shot of that, it was about a week after I spoke to Ms. Butko.

Oh, the story gets even better; so Steve Gall's Supervisor was Judy Dakers, I recognized her right away during the interview with Steve Gall. I called her out right away about and commented on her husband, but as she corrected immediately it was now her ex-husband. Oops, what a way to greet someone.

Update 8-1-2018
Thank you for everyone who has been reaching out!
Here is an update (More lost documents at CRA):

On Octover 20, 2017 I sent CRA important documents and I received confirmation that they received them.

Someone in that department made an error and re-directed my information to someone by the name of Warren O'Dwyer

I contacted Warren in January 2018, I addressed the issue that there was an error and he should not have my documents. Warren called me back and verified that there was a mistake done indeed, however he had to wait until the end of April to send the documents back. I asked why so long, but no clear answer.

In June 2018, I spoke to Warren again and asked if he sent the request back. He confirmed that he did, and he requested I send him copies of the request to expedite the process; I asked when he sent the documents back, he responded "A couple of weeks ago" so I mentioned "End of May that would be?" he agreed.

I asked him then, so if you sent it a couple of weeks ago, why would it be faster if I sent these to you first when they were sent to you by error in the first place?
I also asked what the delay was when he said he would send them back at the end of April; but not until the End of May. He mentioned that he changed offices. I then asked, did you lose the documents while you moved? Warren chuckled and said "I hope not".

I received confirmation via a telephone call with Laura Billings (Manager, CRA) that my documents were in fact lost. I asked for that in writing rather verbally, but I doubt I'll get that)

If you know about Steve Gall and had an audit with him, something happened to you that you didn't really understand; please contact me.

In 2011 when I first attended St. Catharines Tax Office, and met with Judy Dakers and Steve Gall. I recognized Judy right away, and said "You're Tim's Wife" Judy first responded "Ex..... Wife" ... That was our introduction that day.. Lol awkward!

During the Internal Affairs investigation in 2016, there was a picture posted of Mrs. Dakers on social media, and a comment that read "Looks like you and Tim are seeing great things" I sent that picture to CRA internal affairs; and later the police showed up to my house, I wasn't home, so they called me and told me that the CRA called them to talk to me about guns and pictures of someone at CRA. I could not believe that the CRA called the police! This is a civil matter but if they want to get the Police involved; so did I!

I went to the Niagara Regional Police a short time later with pictures of the accused perpetrators who tampered with my evidence; however they said it was a civil matter. Here is the definition of Tampering with Evidence: (wikipedia)

Tampering with evidence, or evidence tampering, is an act in which a person alters, conceals, falsifies, or destroys evidence with the intent to interfere with an investigation (usually) by a law-enforcement, governmental, or regulatory authority. It is a criminal offense in many jurisdictions.

This happened to me! If someone would like to assist; I have a document that came from the St. Catharines Tax Office photocopier. How to tell? The document was photocopied at St Catharines Tax Office by Steve Gall in 2011 and today, the paper is still white. 7.5 years later! Good quality!

The documents I brought into CRA in 2011 were faded because they were produced from 2007 (only 4 years and they were faded), CRA's paper lasts YEARS!

This is a million dollar question if someone can assist me: How can we trace that this piece of paper came from the CRA photocopier? It's definitely not my paper that I brought in, or a photocopy that I made - Because of the paper quality!

Thank you for all your support.
