14 Local and regional taxes / retributions

“Local and regional taxes” include all taxes and retributions which are issued by communities, regions, provinces and municipalities (examples include: environmental taxes, taxes on vacant and/or neglected buildings and houses; establishment taxes, …). These taxes or retributions are less known to the general public, but they often have very serious financial implications for taxpayers, as they often recur annually.

Local and regional taxes typically involve many administrative procedures that precede the final charge (for example, a dispute of registration documents of the several vacancy and/or neglect charges), but that does not make them any less important. These administrative procedures should be navigated very diligently if you wish to have any success disputing the final charge later.

Our firm assists taxpayers both during the preliminary administrative procedures (prior advice included) and in contesting the final charges.
