Lapierre – Tax Court of Canada finds that a Canadian resident working for a UN-authorized agency in Afghanistan was not exempted

A Canadian resident, who was an employee of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan serving as an international civilian consultant, would have been exempted on his salary if the ISAF had qualified as a UN-affiliated agency or if it was a non-military body that was a subsidiary body to the NATO Council. The ISAF did not so qualify because it instead was merely authorized by the UN rather than being a UN agency, and it also was a military body that was not a subsidiary body of NATO. His salary was taxable. This case essentially confirms 2012-0461051E5 F.
