A comprehensive draft of changes to the tax ordinance
The Ministry of Finance is working on the amendment of the tax ordinance. The proposed changes are extensive, and some of them are revolutionary and long-awaited, although the proposed solutions are still far from being ideal. Taxpayers may welcome the idea that the initiation of proceedings under the criminal fiscal code would no longer suspend the limitation period for a tax liability, and that tax liabilities secured by a mortgage or a lien could be statute-barred. However, some unfavorable changes are also planned, e.g. extending the possibilities of the tax office in the scope of blocking accounts.
