Dallas Kleckner CPA, CGA, JD

Barrister and Solicitor

"Unless the Act provides otherwise, a taxpayer is entitled to be taxed based on what it actually did, not based on what it could have done, and certainly not based on what a less sophisticated taxpayer might have done." – Former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, Beverley McLachlin

Never one to choose the path of least resistance, Dallas was attracted to the field of tax law because nobody has ever looked at the Income Tax Act and thought it was “easy”. Upon receiving his accounting designation, Dallas pursued a degree in law and found his niche somewhere in the middle, practicing tax law.

Dallas thrives on the challenge of applying the intricacies of taxation and the law to each unique client and case. Recognizing that no two matters are alike, he tailors his approach to strategically analyze their complete financial situation and how to optimize the tax piece.
