How does the taxpayer know about the tax on his/her real-estates?
The legislator in this law decides that the rental value estimations (the tax base) ratified by the Minister of Finance are to be publicized at all places visited by the most taxpayers. The executive regulation is to specify these places (city halls, city councils, police stations … etc.) in addition to publicizing these estimations in the official journal. Besides, the taxpayer is notified with tax payment according to these estimations via a registered letter or by a teller at an address defined at the intended office or at the chosen address written in the tax declaration submitted.
Does the taxpayer have the right to appeal against the rental value estimations (the tax base) and the tax notified with? And how?
