Published by Carswell, 2011.

This is a biannual publication. The 2011 40th edition was released in August 2011.


The Practitioner's Income Tax Act (PITA) is the market leading consolidated, annotated version of Canada's federal Income Tax Act, Regulations and Application Rules. It includes all proposed legislation in context (with Department of Finance explanatory notes) and is fully annotated and indexed. PITA includes the Department of Finance "comfort letters" obtained under the Access to Information Act. It also features extensive tax rate tables, the full texts of the Canada-US and Canada-UK tax conventions and protocols, and the text of the Interpretation Act.

A must-have guide for any tax or accounting professional's library, PITA is your single source tax research centre packed with all the essential tax information you need at your fingertips.

The 40th edition includes the text of the Income Tax Act of Canada, fully consolidated to reflect all recent amendments, plus all proposed or draft amendments to July 8, 2011, including:
  • March 22, 2011 and June 6, 2011 Federal Budget Notice of Ways and Means Motions
  • Conservative Party Election Platform, April 2011
  • March 16, 2011 draft legislation (changes to reverse three FCA decisions)
  • February 10, 2011 amending regulations (prescribed 2009 drought/excessive moisture regions for tax deferral)
  • February 3, 2011 amending regulations (phase-out of the accelerated capital cost allowance for oil sands projects)
  • February 10, 2011 draft regulations (Omnibus technical amendments)
  • New draft and enacted regulations
  • Various CRA news releases and Finance comfort letters
  • Several new Remission Orders
All the newest draft legislation is fully indexed and annotated by David Sherman with detailed annotations for Related Provisions, Definitions, Regulations and Sherman's Notes. In addition, the Department of Finance technical notes are included for all draft legislation.

The expert Topical Index is compiled personally by David Sherman, and includes references to many terms that do not appear directly in the legislation but which the practitioner may want to search for (e.g. carryback, ordering, short taxation year, vertical amalgamation).

PITA is also available on CD-ROM with the purchase of the print version. The CD-ROM contains the complete content of this edition of PITA, along with previous editions, NEXTpage functionality and an easy-to-use search template…a completely portable version of the Act on your desktop.

All purchases of software are final. More information can be found in our Return Policy.

Practitioner's Income Tax Act is published twice a year, usually in March/April and August/September.
