OTTAWA -- A Canadian businessman who paid his taxes several days before they were due was slapped with a hefty $287,000 penalty because he remitted the cheque to a tax office instead of a bank.
Documents obtained by Sun Media show the Canada Revenue Agency punished the taxpayer with a 10% fine and warned him to pay up immediately or face potential "legal action being taken without further notice."
