Tax law is a branch of law within the scope of financial law. It deals with disputes and problems arising from the tax relationship between the state and individuals. Almost everyone knows the general meaning of the word “tax”. The meaning of tax is clear to everyone, whether they are taxpayers or not. Taxes are mandatory payments to the government.
Tax definitions have changed in direct proportion to the functions imposed on the tax. According to one definition, tax is a compulsory contribution to the service of public authority by separating it from the existence of a person or group of persons. According to another definition, a tax is an obligation imposed by a government body for public purposes.
The independence of tax law has been the subject of different debates in the past. However, today, it is accepted as an independent branch of law with its own institutions and concepts. Tax law is a branch of science or discipline that examines the formal and substantive legal rules related to resolving tax-related disputes and the principles and theories on which these rules are based, from positive and normative perspectives.
What Are The Parts of Tax Law?
Tax law, which is related to various branches of law, including administrative law, constitutional law, criminal law, private law and international law, is divided into four according to its scope: general tax law, special tax law, material tax law, and formal tax law. The divisions of tax law according to their subjects are as follows:
- Tax Procedural Law,
- Tax Criminal Law,
- Tax Enforcement Law,
- Tax Judgment Law,
- International Tax Law.
What is General Tax Law and Special Tax Law?
General tax law is the section where the general concepts, institutions and principles of tax law are examined. Special tax law is the section in which all taxes in the tax system are examined separately and one by one.
What is Material Tax Law and Form Tax Law?
The most important factor constituting the material tax law is the principles and rules regarding the birth and abolition of tax claims. The rules regarding administrative and judicial resolution of tax disputes also constitute formal tax law. These rules are also referred to as tax techniques and include the date, notification, accrual and collection transactions.
What is Tax Procedural Law?
The rules that show how the individuals who make up the society will demand and prove their rights arising from their relations with each other in the legal order are called procedural law. The tax relationship, which expresses a legal relationship between the individual and the state, is also tied to a series of procedural rules.
The tax procedure law, which consists of the rules governing the acquisition, use and performance of rights and duties arising from the tax relationship, covers the taxation principles, the duties of the taxpayer, the determination of the tax receivable, the taxation process and the administrative procedures involved in this process.
It can be stated that the tax procedure law is largely identical with the general tax law and formal tax law since the rules regarding tax procedure law, including tax disputes and tax jurisdiction, are applied to all taxes included in the tax system, except for special provisions.
What is Tax Criminal Law?
Criminal law, a branch of public law that disrupts the social order, shows the illegal acts and the sanctions to be applied to those who commit these acts. Illegal acts are called crimes, and the sanctions applied to their perpetrators are called punishment. Penal sanctions are also applied to violations of tax laws.
Acts that cause damage or the danger of harming the state treasury are acts that require tax penalties in tax law. These acts are usually met with monetary sanctions of administrative and financial nature and sometimes with sanctions in the sense of criminal law. Tax criminal law has developed as a sub-division of tax law, with the effect of the peculiar structure of tax crimes.
What is Tax Enforcement Law?
The branch of law, which consists of the rules regarding the creditor’s obtaining their receivables through the use of public power, is called enforcement and bankruptcy law, or enforcement law. Tax enforcement law, which regulates the payment of tax receivables in case the taxpayer and tax officer do not pay their tax debt, is a branch of tax law consisting of the rules regarding the collection of public revenues obtained by the state based on its sovereign right, by using legal force.
What is Tax Litigation Law?
Proceedings law is a branch of law that regulates the courts’ procedures while performing their judicial duties. Proceedings law is divided into sections such as civil procedure law, criminal procedure law, administrative judgment law and tax judgment law. The rules regarding the settlement of disputes arising from the application of tax laws constitute the subject of tax jurisdiction law.
What is International Tax Law?
International law, a branch of law consisting of the rules of law regulating international relations, accepts equality at the international level by limiting the sovereignty of states that have relations with each other. International tax relations and tax treaties regulating these relations constitute the subject of international tax law. It also includes regulating the relations of states with other states with their own tax laws, unilaterally, apart from international tax treaties.
