Frequently asked questions about voluntary disclosure program - how

How can I make a voluntary disclosure?

You must send in a written submission to make a voluntary disclosure. Form RC199, Voluntary Disclosures Program (VDP) Taxpayer Agreement, should be used to initiate the disclosure. A copy of this form is available on the CRA's website at: www.cra.gc.ca.  

You can also send a letter giving the same information as on form RC199, but failure to use form RC199 may delay the review of the disclosure.
