The Danish Government is allocating an additional DKK230m (USD36m) to ease a backlog of pending tax appeal cases.
According to an announcement by Tax Minister Karsten Lauritzen, the Government is aiming to reduce the average time for tax appeals to be heard from 23 months to 12 months.
To free up capacity in the tax appeals system, the Government intends to employ more administrative staff and streamline existing appeal rules and procedures.
Lauritzen said that the changes are necessary because the current delays in resolving tax cases undermine legal and tax certainty.
