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.
