What is a Tax Lawyer?
A tax lawyer is a legal professional who specializes in tax law. These professionals graduate from accredited law schools, have extensively studied tax law, and have significant experience in tax law. In Canada, this means that a tax lawyer has a complete awareness of the Canadian legal system as well as all Canadian tax laws, including the Income Tax Act, and the Excise Tax Act.
There are a number of reasons why an individual or a company may want to consult with or work with a tax lawyer, such as the experienced team at Farber Tax Solutions.
The Powers of the Canada Revenue Agency
The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is an incredibly powerful agency. In addition to administering tax law for the Government of Canada and in most provinces and territories, the CRA also processes tax returns and collects income tax, excise tax, payroll tax, etc. GST/HST is governed by Excise Tax Act.
It is in the collection of taxes that the CRA can truly demonstrate significant power. The agency is legally able to garnish wages (often without a court order), seize assets, withhold money from other government agencies, and take other collection steps if an individual or organization owes tax debt.
The CRA also performs audits to ensure compliance with tax laws, conducts investigations, and can become a witness in tax court to provide evidence in an appeal. During an appeal, the Tax Court will examine the claims and evidence provided by the taxpayer, as well as the arguments and evidence provided by the government. Information provided by the CRA tax lawyer or the taxpayer will be considered when deciding the case. That is why it is important to work with an experienced tax lawyer who understands tax law and CRA processes.
Working with a Tax Lawyer
There are many reasons why an individual or an organization would work with a tax lawyer. One reason, as mentioned, could be as representation in all levels of court, including the Tax Court of Canada and the Federal Court of Appeal. A tax lawyer can also participate and represent clients in meetings with the CRA. This can be done to ensure that a client’s rights are respected and protected throughout the process.
One situation where it is incredibly important to have legal representation is in a case of potential tax evasion, such as a situation that involves undisclosed foreign income. Tax evasion is a very serious charge and there are significant penalties for a person or organization if proven guilty of this crime, including possible prison time. In recent years, the CRA and the Government of Canada have begun to crack down on possible tax evasion, and special attention has been paid to cases involving foreign income and undisclosed income.
A tax lawyer can defend your rights, present evidence on your behalf, argue your side of the case, and work to ensure that you are treated fairly during the entire process. You can trust a tax lawyer to be on your side and defend your rights.
Working with a tax lawyer means that you will receive solicitor-client privilege when discussing your case. This means that you can discuss any and all matters relating to your tax situation in an open and honest manner. Not only can doing so ensure that all the facts are presented, but it can help you receive better information about Canadian tax law.
