Précis: This case is another attempt by ConocoPhillips to remedy a situation where its taxation year ending November 30, 2000 taxation year was reassessed in 2008. ConocoPhillips claimed never to have received the notice of reassessment and filed a notice of objection in 2010 which the Minister rejected as out of time. ConocoPhillips applied to the Federal Court for an order directing the Minister to consider the notice of objection. They succeeded in the Federal Court but that decision was reversed on appeal. The Federal Court of Appeal held that the appropriate course for ConocoPhillips was to appeal the reassessment to the Tax Court and that court could determine whether the notice of objection had been filed in a timely manner.
