40 day deadline
If you do not appeal within the 40 day period, the assessment becomes final and conclusive. However, if you could not appeal because of absence, sickness or another reasonable cause, the appeal may be admitted by the Comptroller of Taxes if it's given to him without delay. You must supply an explanation of the delay if your appeal is late.
Paying undisputed tax
When you submit an appeal, you must arrange for payment of the tax that is not in dispute immediately.
Legal action may be taken at any time to collect unpaid tax, however if any amount is still outstanding at the December surcharge date a 10% surcharge will be imposed.
I'm not satisfied with the decision of the appeal
If you cannot settle the appeal with the Comptroller of Taxes, you have the right to appeal to the Commissioners of Appeal. You are entitled to present your own case to the Commissioners of Appeal or you can be represented by an advocate, solicitor or accountant.
