A dispute with the tax authorities can cause tremendous stress for taxpayers. By proactively contacting one of our lawyers in this area, you can minimize both your tax exposure and your stress. 

For some time, we have been witnessing a significant increase in disputes between taxpayers and the tax authorities. Whether you are a corporation or an individual, our tax lawyers can advise and defend you in a wide range of tax issues such as tax fraud (criminal and penal law), GST, HST and QST, tax audits of all kinds (including contestations of direct and indirect audit methods), Scientific Research and Experimental Development credits (SR&ED), as well as contentious cases relating to various issues such as specific anti-avoidance rules, the general anti-avoidance rule (GAAR), deductions at source (DAS) and tax collections. 

We also regularly guide clients through verifications, investigations and searches in the context of cases relating to the Permanent Anti-Corruption Unit (UPAC). We also routinely represent clients in contentious claims to obtain authorization from the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) and the Autorité des Marchés Publics (AMP) to bid on public contracts and to obtain various attestations from Revenu Québec. 

Our lawyers have extensive expertise in this area and regularly teach tax litigation courses at some of Québec’s major universities. Whether you are in the tax audit phase, the objection process or even appealing before the tax courts, our experienced lawyers can help resolve your case as quickly and as favourably as possible.
