Income tax – How to apply to correct your taxes

Required information and documentation

To apply for the Voluntary Disclosures Program (VDP), it is best to use Form RC199, Voluntary Disclosures Program (VDP) Application. However, if you prefer, you can send a letter with the same information as requested on the form.

All Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) returns, forms, and schedules needed to correct the non-compliance must be included with your application. You must also pay the estimated amount of the taxes owing.


Although you may ask an authorized representative to send an application for you, you must make sure that you have signed your application and that your representative’s name is on file with the CRA (for more information go to Authorizing a representative).

How to send your application

You can send your application to the CRA online, by mail, or by fax.


Send your completed application using the submit documents online service available through one of the following: My Account, My Business Account or Represent a Client.
