There has been much discussion and litigation surrounding this topic. In this article, we will address common questions and provide a comprehensive guide to objection statements in tax declarations.

Key Points to Consider:

  1. Can objection statements be made in correction declarations?
  2. Are objection statements allowed in regret declarations?
  3. Can objection statements be made in late submissions?
  4. Can objection statements be raised against someone else’s declaration?
  5. Should objection statements be included solely on the tax declaration form?
  6. Is it mandatory to submit a separate petition in addition to including an objection statement on the form?
  7. What should be the content of an objection statement?
  8. Where should the objection statement be placed?
  9. When should the objection statement be made?
  10. What happens if the taxes are not paid?

Recent Danıştay Ruling on the Location and Timing of Objection Statements: A recent ruling by Danıştay has brought clarity to the issue of the location and timing of objection statements. According to the ruling, even if an objection statement is not included in the tax declaration, if a separate petition is submitted during the declaration period, it should be accepted. Furthermore, the court should examine the case on its merits rather than dismissing it on procedural grounds.

First Instance Court Decision: In a case where the taxpayer filed a lawsuit seeking the cancellation of stamp duty levied on the declared amount without including an objection statement, the court ruled that the objection statement submitted after the submission of the tax declaration does not provide grounds for a legal challenge. Consequently, the court rejected the lawsuit without examining its merits.

Summary of Regional Administrative Court Decision: The Regional Administrative Court upheld the decision of the Tax Court, stating that it was lawful and complied with the procedural requirements. The court concluded that the arguments put forward by the plaintiff did not warrant the annulment of the previous decision. As a result, the court rejected the application for appeal.

Danıştay 9th Chamber Ruling: According to the Danıştay 9th Chamber, taxpayers have the right to include an objection statement in their declarations within the specified timeframe. Alternatively, they can submit a petition during the declaration period, indicating that their declaration is made with an objection statement. The legal consequences of the objection statement are not determined by the timing, as the law does not differentiate between these scenarios.

It is essential to recognize that the belief that the legal consequences of objection statements change based on the timing would interfere with the right to access the court and the principle of fair trial.

Conclusion: Based on the recent Danıştay ruling, it is established that taxpayers can submit objection statements either within the tax declaration or through a separate petition during the declaration period. The court should examine cases that include objection statements on their merits rather than dismissing them on procedural grounds. Understanding the proper use and timing of objection statements is crucial for individuals seeking to exercise their rights effectively in tax-related matters.
