Isle of Sham:Tales from a Canadian Tax Haven

KPMG allegedly involved in offshore tax "sham"

This CBC documentary blows the cover off a tax scheme developed by a big-name tax firm that allegedly funnelled money to the Isle of Man with the express purpose of avoiding Canadian taxes.

A Canada Revenue Agency investigator discovered the KPMG scheme. Court proceedings were initiated. Then... nothing.

"The government has had three years to act," says Dennis Howlett, executive director of Canadians for Tax Fairness,who is interviewed for this investigative piece. "Their inaction sends a signal to other firms involved in this kind of work. And it sends a chilling signal to the rest of us - that the wealthy and powerful get different treatment when it comes to taxes."
