Discontinued requests

Pablo Cervantes, of the tax commission of the Public Accountants Association Mexico (CCPM), stated in an interview for the newspaper Reforma that in 95% of the cases the SAT is considering these refund requests as "withdrawn".

He added that this happens when the tax authority requires additional information from the taxpayer, and this is not delivered in a timely manner . This is the reason why the SAT dismisses the refund request, and the taxpayer has to start his request again.

Cervantes indicated that "if the SAT rejected the request completely, the companies could reverse everything in court."

requests Another important change is to modify section IV of article 22-D of the CFF.

The term for the resolution of the return

is increased Section VI of article 22-D of the CFF establishes that the authority must issue its resolution on the powers of verification within a period of 10 business days. In this sense, the explanatory statement of the Fiscal Miscellany says that the effective time of this resolution is five days. Therefore, the new proposal says that the term will be increased from 10 to 20 business days.
