Tax disputes are widely spread in the legal practice, quite frequently in regulatory enforcement. Lack of knowledge among tax payers about the constantly changing legislation leads to accidental or deliberate violations of legal regulations and requirements, which in turn causes tax disputes. However, illegal or unreasonable actions of tax authorities themselves may frequently trigger disagreements and disputes.
In any tax-related dispute tax payers appear to have a more disadvantaged legal position. Tax inspections, their claims, bringing to responsibility and other methods of enforcement actions have a solid backbone of state authorities. The latter may rely only on themselves and, obviously, on competent legal assistance that nowadays is essential for opposing tax authorities in a dispute.
Tax disputes are one of the hardest cases to handle due to the imperfection of legal regulations and ambiguity of local law enforcement practice, as well as their specific nature. Many companies, let alone individuals, cannot afford to have a tax lawyer on a full-time basis. As a result, tax disputes are settled either by accountants with no legal knowledge or lawyers with very little knowledge in specifics of financial and operating activities. This approach does not get to the core of the problem. Therefore, addressing competent experts in the sphere of tax disputes guarantees the most beneficial outcome.
