The Development of Forms and Methods of Tax Control

Congress Centre, conference hall D3
Control, Oversight and Regulation
Given the trend for reducing the number of on-site inspections, the main way of supplementing public coffers through tax administration has been through pre-inspection measures. However, there is no regulation underpinning the way these measures are undertaken. Similarly, there are no official requirements with regard to evidence of possible infringements. As a result, the potential for abuse and corruption exist. Pre-inspection control: is it possible to circumvent regulation in public law relationships? Incentives following pre-inspection analyses: ensuring that dialogue with the taxpayer does not turn into an instrument of pressure. A one-sided game: can a taxpayer be sure that the tax authorities will not reconsider their actions?
