Tax Treaty Negotiations with Oman

December 11, 2002

Negotiations for the conclusion of an income tax treaty between Canada and the Sultanate of Oman will begin January 11, 2003 in Muscat.

The purpose of this bulletin is to ensure that persons whose interests are affected have an opportunity to inform the government of any particular issues of double taxation, which might be resolved in a tax treaty. The government is particularly interested in learning of any difficulties encountered by Canadians under Oman's tax system so that these issues might be taken into account in negotiations.

Persons wishing to offer comments concerning the negotiations should send their views to the Department of Finance at:
