Successful Cases

Below are some of the cases we have been successful in resolving. This is a sampling of the types of cases we have handled in the past.  If you do not find an example of your situation below, feel free to contact us at info@dracheaptowitzer.ca with any questions you may have.

REASSESSMENT OF DIRECTORS FOR TAXES OWED BY CORPORATION

We were retained by two directors of a corporation after they were assessed for over $1,000,000 relating to unremitted source deductions by a corporation. We resolved the matter completely after filing a Notice of Objection.

THIRD PARTY PENALTY

Our client retained us after being assessed a penalty of almost $550,000.  We handled the matter from the Tax Court, through the Federal Court of Appeal and to the Supreme Court of Canada.

DISALLOWED CHARITABLE DONATION TAX RECEIPTS

We were retained by the Estate of a deceased donor to a charity. While the charity was known to have engaged in some fraudulent receipting we managed to convince the CRA that there was no proof that the deceased donor had engaged in such activity.

DENIED PRINCIPAL RESIDENCE EXEMPTION

Our client retained us after she was assessed capital gains tax on the sale of five homes in six years. After filing a Notice of Objection we showed that each of these sales was, in fact, legitimate and not in pursuit of business.

DISALLOWED CHARITABLE DONATION TAX RECEIPT

We were retained by donors of artwork to charity. The CRA disallowed the donation tax receipt and sat on the files for over a decade. We settled the matter at the Tax Court after filing a motion to strike the Crown’s pleadings.

FIGHTING CHARITABLE REVOCATION

After several attempts by a variety of different charities, we obtained a stay for the revocation of a charity, at the time the first charity to do so.

COLLECTIONS

We were retained after a corporate client who had fallen into difficult times but was then on its feet and was trying to catch up on its source reductions.  The CRA attempted to shut down the organization but we negotiated a mutually agreeable settlement with the CRA.

COLLECTIONS

Our client retained us after the CRA forced the organization to make a proposal in bankruptcy in order to settle its source reductions. At that stage, we were able to negotiate a mutually agreeable settlement and the organization is functioning strongly today.

GST/HST

Our client retained us after the CRA and Revenue Quebec assessed this charitable organization as being a business. After one letter and a five-year consideration of the issue by the CRA, the CRA agreed with our view and completely rescinded their assessment.
