Personal & Corporate Tax Planning
Whether you are just starting your career, or thinking about selling your business and retirement, the Tax Lawyers at TNTL are here to assist you in getting the tax result that best meets your objectives.
Trust & Estate Planning
Tax law and estate planning go hand-in-hand. The largest tax bill a taxpayer will ever receive from the Canada Revenue Agency will be upon their death.
When the Canada Revenue Agency has improperly denied your objection, the next step is an appeal to the Tax Court of Canada. Only lawyers can act for taxpayers in a general procedure appeals to the Tax Court of Canada.
Criminal Tax Evasion
Although tax audits and appeals can have a negative impact on taxpayers, nothing is as perilous as an investigation by the Canada Revenue Agency’s Criminal Investigations Division.
Tax audits by the Canada Revenue Agency can be frustrating, stressful, and expensive. The CRA has significant legal and financial resources which it uses to its advantage. We can help level the playing field.
After the Canada Revenue Agency has completed your audit, they will issue a Notice of Reassessment imposing additional income tax or GST/HST. The next step in disputing the additional tax imposed is to file a Notice of Objection with the Appeals Division of the CRA.

Why Choose Us?
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.
In addition to our wealth of experience, the protection offered by legal privilege is one reason why you should choose a TaxNinja.ca lawyer as your trusted tax advisor.
