Taxation of the public sector

Public administration and its entities have to complete a large number of tasks which have to be paid for out of taxation. This requires cost-effective action, both in relation to revenue and in relation to expenditure. As a consequence, there are more and more questions around taxation, for example in connection with reorganization and structuring of entities previously liable to tax. But also the federal government, state governments as well as local authorities and their institutions are confronted with tax questions in connection with contracts to be concluded, the purchase of goods and services, a planned cooperation among authorities or in the communication with the fiscal authorities. The changing legal framework always requires to actively deal with taxation.
