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.
