An HST lawyer is typically a lawyer whose practice is focused on HST or GST issues. Canada’s “Harmonized Sales Tax” or “HST” in its short-form, is really part of our Goods and Services Tax system (“GST”), and provided for in Part IX of the Excise Tax Act.
HST lawyers will typically be familiar with most issues arising in the HST context, although some HST lawyers will practice in a variety of HST areas, while others may focus exclusively on certain types of HST issues. An HST lawyer will often also represent clients before many different levels of government (audits, objections, appeals), and many will also represent clients in appeals to the Tax Court of Canada.
Generally speaking, a HST lawyer will be more familiar with the HST than a general practitioner.
