Dear Mr. Lewis,

Re: Tax Auditor Position with the Canada Revenue Agency

I am writing to apply for the competition currently being held for auditor positions with the Canada Revenue Agency (“CRA”). I graduated from the University of Toronto in 2008 and have been working for two years with PwC as a tax associate.

My role as a tax associate was to prepare personal tax returns for high net worth individuals and corporate tax returns for small privately owned corporations. In addition to preparing tax returns, I did tax research, focusing on CRA interpretation bulletins and technical views. I am familiar with the Income Tax Act and Regulations. I possess good communication skills, can work under pressure and always aim to improve my technical knowledge of taxation. I go to work every day with a positive attitude and a willingness to learn.

I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to discuss my qualifications in more detail and relate to you my interest in joining the CRA. I am confident that my educational background and work experience meet all the requirements of this position. Attached is my resume for your review. Thank you for your consideration.

Yours truly,


Melanie Lay
