Federal appeal | Tax | Income tax | Administration and enforcement
Taxpayer received nil assessments. Tax Court of Canada quashed taxpayer’s appeal because no tax, interest or penalty was assessed under federal income tax law. Taxpayer appealed. Appeal dismissed. Unless taxpayer challenged taxes, interest or penalties assessed, there was nothing to appeal. No relief could be provided from Tax Court from notification that no tax was payable, even if there may have been federal tax owing or amount was payable under provincial law. Tax Court did not breach principles of natural justice and procedural fairness, as judge properly advised taxpayer that it was not role of Tax Court to provide her with legal advice.
