spokesmen for the professions who represent Ca ladian taxpayers have been re luctant to recommend law changes on a piecemeal lUBJIIT BRIEF The fact that the Lawyers and Accountants Joint Com mittee

opposite way in there is still room for The brief properly points out there is a danger that when the Tax Department prepares its Interpretation Bulletins stat ing how officials will apply the these interpretations can be so wide that in make new Law making is the function of not the civil As the professional associat ions feel that the Government In terpretation Bulletins should be issued in proposal form so that anyone who disagrees with the Tax Departments view of what the law means will have an opportunity to make repre sentations and have his views Another point made is that the system whereby the Tax Department will rule in ad on how it will treat a taxpayers proposed tranpac shauld be At the the advance rul ing system does not cover the Estate Tax law nor will the Government give an advance ruling on whether or not a pro fit made on the sale of ones assets will be treated as tax able income or a taxfree capi tal These are vitally im portant areas of tax law an the professional associa t i o n s are quite right in urging Uia the Government should extern the advance ruling system to include The Joint Committee of Law yers and Accountants also rec bmmends that
