Canadian IRS owes $1.3 mil for unlawful Search

He was bullied and harassed over documents he had ALREADY given to the CRA.


Neumann was at home on Sept. 7, 2005, when he saw the police cars. When he answered the door, a CRA investigator told him she had a warrant to search his home for records regarding the Bonnar investigation.

When Neumann asked her why the CRA was accompanied by police, the police officer said in most cases, everyone in the house is arrested.

"Does that mean you're going to arrest me?" asked Neumann. The officer did not reply.

Neumann complied with orders to pull out all the cash he had in the house, and took a computer expert upstairs to his office to download anything he wanted. The search lasted several hours.
