Précis: Mr. Tang was assessed for the 2005, 2006 and 2007 taxation years on the basis of net worth analysis. This amounted to additional income for the 2005 to 2007 taxation years in the amounts of $122,100, $291,663, and $74,943 as well as gross negligence penalties in each of the taxation years. Mr. Tang came to Canada in 1994 as a business immigrant and was involved with rental properties and also bought and sold real estate. He left Canada in 2009 and was no longer a resident. Mr. Tang, who insisted on representing himself notwithstanding the advice of the Court, argued that the sums alleged to be unreported income arose from loans from family members and other non-taxable sources. Amazingly (for this type of net worth case) the Court accepted the bulk of his evidence and directed the reassessments be reduced by 84%.
