Précis: Mr. Elbadawi appealed to the Tax Court in connection with the assessment of unreported shareholder benefits against him, his wife and his son. The trial lasted 10 days. His wife’s appeal was successful and his son’s appeal was partly successful. Mr. Elbadawi was however completely unsuccessful and the Court awarded costs in the amount of $86,240.14 against him to sanction his conduct during the course of the trial. He appealed to the Federal Court of Appeal but did not meet with any luck there either. His appeal of his tax liability was dismissed from the bench. Similarly his appeal of the costs award in the Tax Court was dismissed. The Crown was awarded costs in both appeals.
