Being a CPA does not entitle a person to practice tax law. Tax law, as with any area of law, requires an individual to engage in many steps to mastery. They must attend an accredited law school, undergo a 10-month placement with an approved principal (or completion of the Legal Practice Course), pass barrister and solicitors licensing exams, and eventually called to the bar after satisfying ‘good standing.’ In addition to the general requirements of becoming a lawyer, a tax lawyer, through years of experience, must be specialists in all relevant tax law.
