Tax Appeal Before the Tax Court of Canada
If no settlement can be reached with the CRA regarding a tax reassessment, the next stage in the process is to institute an appeal before the Tax Court. If your matter proceeds under the General Procedure Rules, you must be represented by a lawyer, except with leave of the Court.
