Tax disputes arise as a result of violations of a company’s obligations to the tax authorities. Violation of the requirements of the Federal Tax Service requirements can occur as a result of deliberate or unintentional actions, due to ignorance of the changing tax laws. In addition, differences and disputes may arise as a result of the wrongful actions of the tax authorities themselves.
What Makes Tax Disputes Critical?
One of the features of tax disputes is that when they arise, the company as a rule, is in a more vulnerable position from a legal point of view. The tax inspectorate has a wide range of measures at its disposal that can impact the taxpayer (tax claims, prosecution, blocking of current accounts, and so on), and as it is a public authority, the tax inspectorate enjoys strong support in the form of state administrative resources. In fact, a dispute with the tax authorities is a dispute with the state.
In order to protect their rights and legitimate interests in such a situation, companies need to enlist the help of professional lawyers specializing in resolving tax disputes.
