The tax lawyers at Payne Law recognize the fear, uncertainty and anxiety taxpayers face when under scrutiny of the Canada Revenue Agency. These fears and feelings are not unfounded. The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has broad powers to investigate taxpayers and you can be deemed “guilty” of a tax violation with only a cursory review of your tax filings and a few keystrokes. Once a CRA agent says you owe – the onus is on you to prove otherwise.

Yan negotiates and settles numerous taxpayer disputes against the CRA every year. When a fair solution can not be negotiated, Yan; as a proven tax appeal litigation lawyer, is fully prepared to escalate a case he believes in to formal tax appeal proceedings at the Tax Court of Canada
