Tax Controversy

Tax controversy describes tax disputes that arise between tax collection entities such as the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and Canadian taxpayers. The CRA assesses every tax return it receives and chooses to either accept or modify it with a notice of reassessment whereas their calculations show you may owe more or less than the amount you had originally thought. And, any time after filing the initial tax return, the CRA may audit you or your business to collect extra monies they believe are owed.

We work with you to prevent, manage and resolve tax disputes with CRA and other tax collecting entities in a way that reduces your tax costs and minimizes disruptions. We then go one step further by developing strategies and policies to protect your business in the event of future audits and disputes.
