News Release – Federation Challenges Income Tax Provisions

As noted in the News Release, the Federation of Law Societies of Canada is challenging provisions of the Income Tax Act that require legal counsel to report confidential information about their client’s activities to the Canada Revenue Agency.

The Government of Canada has consented to a 30-day injunction suspending the application of the provisions to members of the legal profession, pending a hearing on the Federation’s injunction application.

We will provide further information when it becomes available.
