A tax lawyer in Calgary is there to advise and assist you with many different types of questions you might have around the tax planning and addressing tax problems. Advanced planning is always recommended when it comes to managing complicated tax concerns. The insight of an experienced tax attorney can make you aware of strategies that are no longer suitable for your situation. Discovering new opportunities can ensure that your planning reflects your tax planning goals and overall needs.
What Is a Calgary Tax Lawyer and Why Do You Need One?
Both individuals and business owners can benefit from the services provided by a Calgary, tax attorney. A Calgary tax lawyer will advise you about foundational structures, strategies and tools you can use to limit tax problems as well as how to respond when a tax crisis, such as a tax audit, occurs. Unlike a tax accountant, tax lawyers provide solicitor-client privilege so while CRA can raid an accountant’s offices they cannot seize a tax lawyer’s files. This privilege lasts forever and cannot be challenged by the CRA and other authorities.
When you have an established relationship with a tax lawyer, it’s much easier to reach out and ask for help when a tax issue impacts you.
