Including Criminal Code, Highway Traffic, Income Tax, and Regulatory Offences

Taxes and Criminal Law

I deal with tax questions from distraught people. Their upset is understandable:
  • There are endless ways you or your accountant can mess up your taxes, even despite best efforts.
  • The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has enormous investigative powers.
  • The CRA has a huge prosecution budget that is sometimes spent without regard to proportionality.
  • The CRA is vested with highly effective enforcement procedures.
  • Scammers very successfully exploit the existing distrust and fear many citizens have towards our tax system. Maybe you know what I'm talking about.
Something fairly unique about my legal practise is that I combine criminal law defense work with tax law. If you are facing an investigation or charges under the Income Tax Act, or think you might be, I can help you.
