Interpreting facts and the law is not an exact science, but rather a human and social science. For that reason, taxpayers can sometimes find themselves at odds with the tax authority’s interpretation of the facts and/or legal rules leading to a heavier tax burden. In such cases, the taxpayer can challenge the tax decision with the relevant tax authority or, if necessary, in court.
A thorough knowledge of the substantive and procedural rules pertaining to tax law is essential for a successful outcome in tax-related litigation. Consequently, law firms are playing an increasingly important role in this area.
