"Bankruptcy and income tax debt: recent developments on tax-driven insolvency"
by Dana Nowak of MLT
In contrast with the general overview of bankruptcy presented earlier in the year, September’s presentation will be tax specific. Many individuals and businesses are experiencing financial hardship and cash flow issues in Alberta’s current economic climate. Often taxpayers prioritize paying day-to-day bills in favor of tax liabilities which do not seem so urgent at the time. What happens to taxpayers who become insolvent as a result of these snowballing tax burdens? Discover what recent case law such as Re Schnier tells us about income-tax driven bankruptcies. How are income tax debts viewed in contrast with other liabilities? Dana Nowak from MLT has the answers in a presentation you do not want to miss.
