Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) regularly conducts audits and reassessments of both personal and corporate filings. Also Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) conducts tax fraud investigations through the department of special investigations. Many times that leads to criminal charges and monetary penalties for gross negligence in reassessing returns. Our firm has handled a number of very serious tax appeals and income tax reassessments in the Federal Court of Canada and has defended tax evasion charges in the criminal courts.

Very few criminal lawyers conduct tax appeals in the Federal Court of Canada and very few civil tax litigators defend tax evasion charges in criminal court. We rely upon our experience in this respect to give us a unique perspective on how to deal with multi-faceted problems arising from numerous actions brought by the federal government. That is to say, the lawyers at Howard C. Cohen and Associates can represent you with equal dexterity in any forum regarding tax matters.
