David Copperfield is having problems with Ottawa, and they're the kind that he can't vanish without legal magic. According to the Globe and Mail, Mr. Copperfield says his former accountant filed to file Canadian tax returns for him for a number of years, leading to tax liability and penalties, in the hundreds of thousands of Canadian dollars. The magician has filed suit in Los Angeles.
Sounds like we need an expert witness to explain a little about Canadian tax law. Maybe David Ben, the wonderful Canadian magician and former tax lawyer?
