Vancouver Tax Litigation Lawyers

Assessment Appeals

Many individuals and corporations receive a tax assessment which is incorrect and which they wish to appeal. That appeal process often leads to applying to the Tax Court for relief. The limitation dates for theses appeals are stringent and it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. In order to protect your rights, it is best to have one of our tax litigation lawyers to act for you as soon as possible.

At Wiebe Wittmann El-Khatib, we represent clients who want to object to or appeal a tax assessment. In general, if someone wants to appeal an assessment, they might not realize that the interest and penalties continue to accrue. We can help in negotiating a settlement that is satisfactory to both our clients and to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

Disclosure Rules

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has developed very specific disclosure rules that must be followed. If disclosure is made to an accountant, there is no privilege. The accountant must divulge to CRA everything he or she knows about your tax position. One major benefit of coming to a lawyer is that most communications between the client and the lawyer are protected by solicitor-client privilege. Provided the taxpayer has not made prior disclosure of his tax position to CRA or an accountant, the information disclosed to his lawyer is protected.
