Obtain Excellent Results in Tax Appeals
Many clients are not aware of the procedures involved in commencing and proceeding with an Income Tax Appeal. The Income Tax Act of Canada stipulates the normal periods for reassessing a taxpayer. However, the Canada Revenue Agency may assess or reassess a taxpayer at any time, if the taxpayer or the person filing the return has made any misrepresentation that is attributable to neglect, carelessness or willful default, or has committed any fraud in filing the return or in supplying any information under the Act.
