Appealing a Decision of the Tax Court of Canada
If the Tax Court did not rule in your favour you have the right to appeal to a higher court such as the Federal Court of Appeal.
If you wish to take your case to the Court of Appeal, a Canadian Tax Lawyer has to file a Notice of Appeal within 30 days of the Tax Court ruling. We can complete this notice on your behalf.
The Federal Court of Appeal can dismiss the appeal or render a new decision. In some circumstances, it will send the case back to the Tax Court. At this stage, there is certainly an advantage to having an expert in tax law at your side.
Few cases will go beyond the Federal Court of Appeal. However, if you disagree with the decision, there is one last step you can attempt: requesting the right to present your case to the Supreme Court of Canada. In the rare circumstance your appeal is accepted to be heard by the Supreme Court, it will review the decision by the Federal Court of Appeal.
