David M. Sherman, LLB, LLM
David Sherman is a tax lawyer and one of Canada's best-known authors on income tax and GST. His Practitioner's Income Tax Act (published by Carswell) is widely recognized as the leading Income Tax Act in Canada due to his commentary and annotations. His other publications include:
- Department of Finance Technical Notes
- The Practitioner's Goods and Services Tax, Annotated
- Canada GST Service
- Canada GST Cases
- GST Times
- Basic Tax and GST Guide for Lawyers.
He has a technical knowledge of the GST unsurpassed in Canada, having written detailed commentary on every section of the GST legislation and every reported court decision relating to the GST.
When not busy updating his many publications, David provides consulting services, especially for tax disputes (audits, objections and appeals) involving GST. His encyclopaedic knowledge of the GST, income tax legislation, and case law enable him to come up with solutions to tax assessments that few others would find, and he has had tremendous success in having his submissions accepted by CRA auditors and appeals officers.
David's family lineage includes another well-known tax advisor, Arnold Sherman, our Calgary representative.
