Anti-Zionist Jewish sect accused of dodging taxman for years: Court documents

An ultra-orthodox Jewish sect whose members fled Canada has been dodging the taxman for years, the Canada Revenue Agency says.

The tax agency alleges the Lev Tahor group used charities to evade $4.4 million in Quebec taxes, according to Federal Court documents obtained by QMI Agency.

About 200 members of the sect fled to Guatemala from Chatham, Ont., earlier this year amid allegations of child abuse north of Montreal, where they were based for years.

The Canada Revenue Agency has its eyes on Congregation Riminov, the group’s Quebec-based charity.
