Irvin Leroux V. CRA (Updated Dec 10, 2014).

 

“The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) owes a duty of care to taxpayers. Who would have thought this was a new idea? One would assume that a modern liberal democratic state would have this concept enshrined in law and convention by now.

On July 30, 2014, Irvin Leroux finally got an important victory in his 18-year battle with the CRA. That day Justice M.A. Humphries of the Supreme Court of British Columbia made two extraordinary rulings: first, that the CRA owed Mr Leroux a duty of care to deal with him in a non-negligent manner; and second, that the CRA breached this duty of care by doling out huge monetary penalties to Leroux for errors in reporting his income that he did not actually make.”
