Tax Litigation in Italy


The tax authority in Italy can arrange tax inspection, so that at the end of the procedure is issued and notified an audit report to the taxpayer asking him to pay an higher amount of taxes or penalties; anyway the taxpayer is not forced to pay this amount until the final tax assessment is issued.

 

The taxpayer could:

  • claim the tax audit report asking for dismissal of it by filing a defence writ within 60 days since the notification of it; or
  • agree with the tax authority for payment of the higher amount of tax settled and the penalty will be reduced to one sixth; or
  • start a tax settlement procedure in order to avoid a litigation in front of the tax court, in this case the tax payer and the tax authority could enter an agreement by which the taxpayer will have to pay the higher tax settled and the penalty will be reduced to one third of the amount of tax settled.

If these remedies fail, the tax authority will issue the final tax assessment.

 

If so, the taxpayer could appeal the final tax assessment in front of the tax court.

 

Anyway, before the first hearing the taxpayer could agree for a settlement with the tax authority, so that the penalty will be reduced to 40% of the total amount of tax settled to be paid.

 

The art. 37 bis of DPR 600/1973 provides the general anti avoidance rules in Italy (GAAR) which applies only to any transactions, such as: contributions in kind, credit sales, mergers, demerges.
