Here we go again!

Today we received a request from Escape Industries to send up a copy of our Form 7501 and state registration. Who can tell me what the Canada Revenue Agency is? Why after 8 months from purchase and registration we are dealing with this issue again? How many of you have gotten the request again? As far as I know, we did everything by the book and stop at the border for the inspection and legal stamping. Texas/Washington County accepted all the documentation for registration without issue and I have a clean registered title and plate.

I don't mind cooperating with Escape, but I don't give a hoot about CRA or what they want from me. That's just being a Texan without apology.

CRA is the Canadian equivalent of the US IRS (CRA for "Canada Revenue Agency").

Escape Industries have to collect taxes on the sale of the trailers on behalf of the Canadian government if they are sold and stay in Canada. CRA may be doing a spot check on Escape and they may have to submit proof that your trailer was exported because no taxes were paid.

I'm sure Tammy would let you know the reason why if you asked her.

Sounds like CRA is doing an audit. Just send up what they need. Don't mess it up for Escape exporting trailers south in the future.

I got the request yesterday, too, and for the second time. We don't have our Form 7501 because the state authorities kept it when we registered the trailer. I sent Escape a scan of our title and registration yesterday and received an email back from Escape saying that works for them.

I'm with you, Dave and Sandy. Too much government on both sides of the border.

Thanks Barry for the explination. Again.. I have sent this documentation once already M.M. I am very protective against identity theft and don't normal send or give out documentation anytime to just anyone. You might have got a hint as to how I feel about governmental agencies infringing on my liberty, freedom, and the right to enjoy life and my hard earned money.

Actually all of this is a good sign, that our government and canadian governments are working to ensure that everything is proper. Being requested to show receipts for something is a lot better than not having any paperwork at all. When submitting paper work it is always best to keep copies or originals. Double checking is a good sign (spoken by a 38 year veteran of government goobleygosh who is still trying to correct his pension which has a $6/month error still going on after 6 years!!!)

This most probably is the reason Escape starting exporting their TT's to the US.
