As EU tax law has become more and more complex and sophisticated in recent years, so has EU tax law litigation. The features of EU law and its own sources give rise to specific problems when litigating EU tax law not only before the Court of Justice of the European Union (ECJ) but also before EU national courts. Additionally, the relevance of EU tax law has expanded outside the EU borders, inspiring tax litigation before national courts of non-EU states as well as before international courts.


This book is the result of the 7th GREIT Conference held in September 2012 in Madrid at the Instituto de Empresa (IE). The book analyses the problems and challenges faced by taxpayers when litigating EU tax law from a comparative perspective, dealing not only with purely national issues but also with the influence of EU tax law in tax litigation in international scenarios.
