Six months to challenge a tax assessment.
Date: 31 July 2006
As of 1 August 2006, taxpayers will have six
months to contest an income tax assessment.
When the tax procedure was overhauled in
1999, this period had been reduced from six to three months. However,
this delay proved too short and has now been extended to six months
again. The months’ delay will only apply to tax assessments sent on
or after 2 May 2006.
