Canada Revenue Agency Using Social Media to Catch Tax Cheats

Big Data is Coming for You via Those Lavish Vacation Photos

Once something is posted to the internet, it’s never going away. And now the Canada Revenue Agency can use anything you’ve ever posted to social media sites to audit you, labeling it all “publicly available information.”

The Canadian Revenue Agency is snooping through your Facebook, creeping your Twitter and stalking your Instagram pictures in search for evidence they can use to prove you cheated on your taxes.

Now don’t panic just yet, if you’re not up to any suspicious activity you should be in the clear.

However, for example, if you’re posting about your new expensive car, living in a nice home, and sharing your vacation pictures to Bora Bora, but you report a relatively low income each year, then it might be time to review your socials.

You’ve been warned!
