QB Permits Pre-Claim Interpreter Fees - Post-taxation/assessment fees not allowed

The ABQB affirmed an assessment officer’s allowance of pre-Statement of Claim interpreter fees, noting that the new Rule is broader than the old rule. However, the court did not allow anticipated interpreter fees necessary to close the file following the taxation. Fees at $80 per hour were allowed, noting that the interpreter billed in .1 increments. See: Ma v Coyne, 2013 ABQB 416.
