"Tax Rulings: Is There Still A Reason for Their Existence?" - Practical Mexican Tax Strategies

WorldTrade Executive, Inc.

One thing that makes the Mexican tax system different from many other tax systems in the world is that its legal provisions are constantly modified.

At least once a year, the Mexican Congress enacts a bill amending relevant tax statutes. In order to counterbalance the periodic changes to tax provisions, the Mexican Fiscal Code of the Federation (“FCF”) allows taxpayers to request tax rulings from the Mexican Treasury. Until December 31, 2006, tax rulings were always binding for the Mexican Treasury, and were challengeable by the taxpayers.

However, effective as of January 1, 2007, two important modifications to the provision that regulates tax rulings were enacted: (i) tax rulings will be binding for the Mexican Treasury only if certain requirements are met; and (ii) taxpayers should not be entitled to challenge tax rulings.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
