Effective legal protection against enforcement by the Tax Authority

If an enforcement of tax debt is impending / Advice by the tax law specialist and tax adviser in Cologne

Enforcement measures often pose an existential threat for the client, and the Tax Authority is in an advantageous position: It can create its own enforcement order by way of issuing a tax assessment notice. This means, that the balance of power is shifted in favour of the Tax Authority. This is contrary to civil matters, where the respondent must first be sued in order to obtain an enforceable judgement. For the sake of equality in tax law, the client should be aware of his rights in enforcement proceedings. Our tax law specialists in Cologne represent clients in enforcement proceedings and utilize their practical experience as former officers of the Tax Authority.
