Impact of COVID-19 on tax disputes

These adjustments include the suspension of certain working activities, deadlines and hearings.
In this Litigation Note, we review and summarize changes pertinent to federal tax disputes and CRA audit activity. Any of our tax dispute lawyers would be pleased to discuss how you or your clients may be impacted by these changes.
