  • Applications for tax ruling

    An individual tax interpretation is a written position of the Director of the National Tax Information Service regarding the tax consequences of a taxpayer’s current practice or a planned future event. The Director of KIS issues a positive or negative interpretation, depending on whether he agrees with the taxpayer’s position. Obtaining a positive ruling guarantees the taxpayer legal protection, provided that the description of the facts or future event presented in the application is consistent with reality. Otherwise, the taxpayer cannot take advantage of the protective power of the interpretation, which is why it is so important to cooperate with tax advisors who will properly formulate both the description of the actual state of affairs or future event and prepare arguments supporting the taxpayer’s position expressed in the application.

    It is not an art to prepare an application for an interpretation in which the issue will be presented in such a way as to obtain a positive ruling. On the other hand, the real challenge is to prepare an application that will simultaneously confirm the correctness of the conducted or planned activities, and at the same time guarantee the protective power of the interpretation.

      Judgment of the Supreme Administrative Court, ref. no. I FSK 1816/20

      The court objected to the very common approach among the tax authorities, but also often among the courts, of attributing an implicit awareness of participation in a fraud by pointing out that the evidence on the record did not show that such awareness existed. The court ordered that very precise criteria be taken into account that would make such awareness of fraud plausible.
