Individuals, businesses of all sizes, organizations and even charities will face tax issues from time to time. You cannot ignore the problem thinking that it will go away. In fact, ignoring the tax problem is the worst thing you can do. Any delay on your part will only make the matter worse and will eventually result in a full loss of appeal rights and the ability of CRA to collect a debt that may not be properly owing. This can lead to stiff penalties, and even criminal prosecution. Tax disputes are distracting and stressful.

Pro Tip

Tax Audits in Ontario

There are over 350,000 tax audit and review actions conducted by the Canada Revenue Agency on a yearly basis. Around 15,000 of these tax audits deal with “cash only” businesses (i.e. the underground economy). Additionally, an estimated 35,000 are tax shelter audits.

Frequently Asked Questions

A tax lawyer who also has a professional designation as a CPA such as firm founder David J. Rotfleisch has the benefit of dual training, that of the tax lawyer and the accountant. The client benefits because the tax lawyer is able to read and fully understand financial statements and to review and question the accuracy of tax returns and amounts claimed. Instead of the taxpayer relying just on the filings prepared by the accountant, the dual designated lawyer is able to independently review the returns or financial statements before they are submitted to CRA, thereby ensuring accuracy of anything submitted to CRA.

The Law Society of Ontario, which governs the legal profession in Ontario, sets out criteria that have to be met in order for a lawyer to be recognized as a specialist in a field of law.


Certified Specialist in Taxation is the certification given to tax lawyers who have met the criteria set out by the Ontario law society. As of the end of April 2020 David Rotfleisch is one of only 12 certified specialists in taxation.
