Legal Remedies in European Tax Law

Why this book?

Until now the topic of legal remedies in European direct tax law has been significantly underexposed within the academic tax community.

This book aims at filling this gap by providing the typical approaches to European tax law with a general vision on European law, and puts together theory and practice, but also includes contributions on selected relevant issues arising in the protection of taxpayers’ rights.


The book was drafted on the basis of a GREIT conference held in Cetara in 2008 on “Legal Remedies in European Tax Law”. It was conceived as a continuation to two previous events, held respectively in 2006 in Lund on “Towards an Homogenous EC Direct Tax Law” and in 2007 in Lisbon on "The Meaning and Scope of the Acte Clair Doctrine”. The latest GREIT conference was held in 2009 in Amsterdam on "Traditional and Alternative Routes to European Tax Integration".
