Dear bank manager,
I am a customer at your bank and have several personal and business accounts, as a well as self-serve trading accounts at your discount brokerage.
I understand that on September 30, 2015 Canada CRA turned over private banking information on 155,000 accounts to the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Your bank also provided some of this information.
Please tell me whether your bank passed on any of my banking information to CRA for the subsequent transfer of the data to the IRS. I think it is very possible as I was born in the United States and may have presented my US passport as a form of identification when I opened some of the accounts.
I need this information in writing by ASAP so that I can prepare my family for the impact of having the IRS know everything about our bank accounts..
If you are unable to comply with my request, would you please kindly provide your reasons?
Thank you and always a pleasure,
