We are masters in the art of tax litigation. We are experts in dealing with tax appeals before the court and tribunals.
At King Lawyers, our dedicated and passionate tax solicitors can represent you before the court and tribunals, and achieve the best possible outcome for your case. The principal of King Lawyers, Navid King, is a senior tax lawyer with extensive experience as a former tax lawyer of Australian Taxation Office (ATO).
If you have a tax dispute with the ATO or Office of State Revenue (OSR) that cannot be resolved, you may be able to take the matter to court or tribunal to have the matter decided by an independent judge or tribunal member. The court or tribunal decision will then confirm, set aside or vary the original tax assessment or decision.
A tax appeal needs to be made to a federal court or tribunal in Australia. These comprise of the Administrative Appals Tribunal, Federal Court of Australia and High Court of Australia.
It is important to note that:
- There are strict time limits that apply to a tax appeals to a court or tribunal; and
- You generally only have the right to lodge one appeal to the same court or tribunal against each tax assessment or decision.
Therefore, it is important that you get the appeal right the first time and comply with all the necessary requirements.
If you are in a dispute with the ATO or OSR, you should contact us immediately to arrange a meeting at our office and seek legal advice on whether you have a valid ground to appeal the relevant tax assessment or decision. If so, you can engage King Lawyers to prepare your appeal and manage the whole appeal process for you from the start to the end.
