Applications for Extensions of Time for Tax Appeals

Many clients are not aware of the procedures involved in commencing an Income Tax Appeal. The Income Tax Act of Canada stipulates the limitation periods for filing either a Notice of Objection to the Canada Revenue Agency or for filing a Notice of Appeal to the Tax Court of Canada. In the event that clients do not comply with these limitation periods, it may be possible, in certain circumstances, to bring an Application to permit an extension of time for filing such Notices.
