There are numerous special protections and advantages provided to First Nations individuals and their businesses through the Indian Act and the Income Tax Act. Principally, Canadians who are “Indians” under the Indian Act are protected from federal, provincial and municipal taxes on their on-reserve property. Taking advantage of these protections in order to advance business development is complex, and as a result, many First Nations individuals and their businesses do not take full advantage of these protections.
Our firm has successfully litigated complex First Nations taxation matters, allowing our clients to fully realize the tax protections granted under the Indian Act and increasing the scope of these protections.
