Dual citizens launch legal challenge on Canada-U.S. tax deal The Globe & Mail (J Wingrove)
“A pair of Canadian dual citizens have launched a legal challenge against a federal law that allows their banking information to be shared with American authorities.
The lawsuit, filed Monday in Federal court against Justice Minister and Attorney General Peter MacKay, amounts largely to a Charter challenge against the Canadian government’s implementation of the United States Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, or FATCA, which is designed to collect taxes from Americans living abroad.”
