Clients with potential or existing income tax disputes frequently feel enormous pressure and look to their tax advisors for assistance, information, practical advice and guidance. This seminar will focus on advising such clients and certain challenges which the tax dispute resolution and litigation processes may present to taxpayers and their advisors. Various topics will be covered, including voluntary disclosures, responding to proposed assessments, waivers, objections, strategies for addressing breakdowns in communications with Canada Revenue Agency officials, obtaining information from the Canada Revenue Agency and strategic planning with respect to tax disputes.

Practical Problems in Income Tax Disputes is another instalment in the Fasken Martineau Tax and Estates Breakfast Seminar Series offered to taxpayers and tax and estates advisors by David Fox, a partner in Fasken Martineau's Taxation group. David will be joined in this seminar by Alan M. Schwartz, Q.C and Christopher Steeves, both senior partners in the Fasken Martineau Taxation group.  All of David, Alan and Chris have extensive experience advising clients ranging from individuals and family-owned businesses to large, multi-national corporations. They have worked on numerous voluntary disclosures, tax dispute and litigation matters.

Each seminar in the series will be fast-paced and offer a practical presentation on particular topics. All seminars are complimentary.
