Interim President Adly Mansour has issued a presidential decree with a new law permitting reconciliation in the current disputes between the taxpayers and the Tax Authority. This comes in regards to cases currently registered in all courts, including the Court of Cassation.
The new law published today in the Official Gazette allows reconciliation in accordance to Law No. 159 of 1997 concerned with reconciliation in tax disputes listed in front of courts, according Al-Shark Al-Awsat News Agency.
The law forms committees in the Tax Authority, and its membership is limited to judges. These committees attempt to reconcile the authority and the nationals. This applies in cases of appealing against tax due decisions or accusations of tax evasion.
