Tax audits by the Canada Revenue Agency (“CRA”) can be frustating, stressful, and expensive. The CRA has significant legal and financial resources which it uses to its advantage.
After the Canada Revenue Agency (“CRA”) has completed your audit, they will most likely issue a Notice of Reassessment imposing additional tax payable.
Tax counsel at TaxNinja.ca understand that as a tax accountant or tax preparer you will often make significant contributions to your client’s tax dispute during an audit or objection to the Canada Revenue Agency (“CRA”).

Why Choose a TaxNinja.ca Lawyer?
Although tax accountants and tax lawyers provide some similar services, there is one important characteristic which distinguishes your relationship with your tax lawyer from your tax accountant: Legal Privilege.
Legal Privilege protects all communications between a lawyer and his client for the purpose of providing legal advice. Those communications between you and your tax lawyer cannot be disclosed to the Canada Revenue Agency without your consent. This means that that you can communicate with us in confidence that it will never be seen by the Canada Revenue Agency. Legal Privilege also protects our review and analysis of your particular tax issue, which allows us to present a number of different options to you on a completely confidential basis.
