Percy Downe, who has been leading the fight in Parliament on tax evasion. "It's a tremendous revenue loss to the country." He wants the government to boost the CRA's funding for fighting tax evasion.

Popular on Forbes: Golfer Phil Mickelson may call it quits due to climbing tax rates

Word is, Phil Mickelson is mad as hell about rising tax rates, and he’s not going to take it anymore.

http://www.forbes.com

While the nation’s eyes are affixed firmly on the future tax implications of the fiscal cliff negotiations, few people realize that they stand to pay larger tax bills in 2012 courtesy of a little something Congress could have — and should have – taken care of long ago: the exemption to the alternative minimum tax (AMT).
