While the legal system in Taiwan is based on the civil law tradition, it has been strongly influenced by common law. A substance over form-type doctrine has been in existence in Taiwan tax law for some time. It was incorporated in 2009 into the article 12-1 of the Tax Collection Act. The judiciary accords great deference to the expertise of the administrative branch. It is inclined to rule in favor of the taxing authority in tax controversies.
