British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Khairati v. Prasad, 2002 BCSC 360 (CanLII):

In Anson v. Karoway (supra), Burnyeat J. allowed for tax gross-up saying: The award for future care costs will be subject to a tax gross-up. There were no materials before me as to the appropriate gross-up percentage and, accordingly, I set that percentage at 31.67% with what has been used in other decisions.
