After a Canadian income tax lawyer has filed a Notice of Objection with the CRA an Appeals Officer is assigned to the file. The Appeals Officer is mandated to look at the file from an objective point of view to try to come to a fair (in accordance with the Income Tax Act) resolution of the income tax dispute. There are 90 days after receipt of an income tax assessment to file the Objection with the Canadian taxman. Filing the Objection will suspend collection actions by the CRA income tax collections officer.
