Tax Dispute Resolution

Disputes over tax liability are one of the most frequent types of dispute. There are many causes of tax disputes, such as being charged too much or being refused a tax refund. 

A tax dispute can daunting, but being aware of the options there are for resolution can be extremely helpful. Obtaining legal advice is important for two reasons, first, you need to be sure of your position and secondly you need to understand all the options open to you and the consequences of your choice.

In this space, we outline different types of tax disputes, how you can appeal against a tax decision and how a tax dispute can be dealt with, as well as providing answers to frequently asked questions to help you fully understand this issue.
