The mutual agreement procedure (MAP) is an instrument for the resolution of international tax disputes whenever a person considers that the actions of one or both of the contracting states’ tax administrations result or will result in taxation not in accordance with the provisions of a tax convention or of a tax treaty.
To this end, the MAP allows competent authorities designated from the governments of the contracting states to interact with the intent to resolve the international tax dispute. On October 10 2017, the Council of the European Union issued Directive (EU) 2017/1852 with the purpose of increasing tax certainty in the single market. With Legislative Decree No. 49/2020 published on June 10 2020, the Italian legislator approved the decree implementing EU Directive 2017/1852.
