Great Inititative! Take it National.
CRA information sessions have always been well attended. I applaud you for changing your approach from speaking mode.

I find the pages taking me to comment sections very "busy". There is a reason most Internet discussion boards have one line for each topic section. As well, guidance on the topics desired in each section would be helpful.

Overall, though, nothing is ever perfect out of the gate, and this is an excellent and welcome initiative.

Thank you CRA for this opportunity to make our voices heard.
Although this is not a topic which we encounter on a daily basis, it is a pain when we do encounter. Recently I had to confirm CDA balance for a client who has been a client for the last 6 years.
It would be nice to have the CDA balance available online under Represent a client.

I think this is a great opportunity for CRA to provide a dedicated service to tax professionals and representatives - can't wait for it to be operational.

Completely agree on the comments about the address changes for personal accounts.

Would also like to see the ability to transfer payments between taxation years for individuals.

Thanks for the outlet.

US-CDN citizens must pay capital gains tax on capital gains from principal residence to IRS. I would rather pay that tax to Canada (The country that is doing something for me rather than to a country that I have not lived in for 32 years and will never return to). CRA should apply same capital gains tax on principal residence to US-CDN as IRS and the US-CDN citizen will claim a foreign tax credit on their IRS tax filing to offset the taxes owed to IRS.

In order for this site to be successful at getting dialogs going, the message needs to be clear that it is a safe place to have the conversations and that tactful communication is invited. If the site appears to be slanted to government propaganda it will not succeed. If fair and open dialog is encouraged the site could be wildly successful. ____ Especially if CRA is willing to accept suggestions and make changes where appropriate.
