COVID-19 Tax Update: Tax Court outlines fast-track settlement conference process

As part of its reopening process, the Tax Court of Canada is introducing a fast-track settlement conference process to address the delays created by the Court’s closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  This new avenue of resolution is available for General Procedure appeals where a Reply to the Notice of Appeal has been filed.  Parties interested in applying for the fast-track settlement conference process are invited to file a joint request with the Court following the guidelines outlined in Practice Note No. 24.
