About European Tax Jurisdiction

Current issues concerning the development of tax law in Europe are increasingly caught between the demands of European integration and the sovereignty of EU member states. The blog deals with the main developments in the field of tax law, in particular from the point of view of the European judges responsible for tax litigation. The main topics are decisions of the European Court of Justice and on the submissions of national courts to it in tax law matters as well as current legislative projects in the field of tax law.
