Always hotly anticipated, the annual CRA roundtable at the Society of Trust and Estate Society Practitioners (STEP) National Conference features CRA representatives answering tough questions on tax policy and administration.

This year’s edition, held June 13, was packed with insights — and a touch of humour. The 15 questions answered explored TFSA audits, the safe income rules and cross-border taxes. CRA cautioned that its verbal answers were conversational in tone, and that its full commentary would be released in a few months. (Update, September 5: the commentary can be found here.)

The roundtable was moderated by Paul LeBreux of Globacor Tax Advisors Professional Corporation and featured Michael Cadesky of Cadesky Tax and Kim Moody of Moodys Gartner Tax Law on the practitioner side. The CRA representatives were Steve Fron, manager, Trusts Section, Income Tax Rulings Directorate and Marina Panourgias, industry sector specialist, Trust Section II, Income Tax Rulings Directorate.

Below, see our Twitter summary of the first seven questions. Go here for the other eight questions.
