I am owner of a dog. Shortly after purchasing I have it registered with the city online, which I at once got a tax bill with the payment date. So it was for 2011, 2012 and also for 2013. For 2014, was the communication on the back of the communication of, 2013.
Now I suddenly received a reminder including late fees, because I had the dog license fee (quarterly) in February 2015 transferred. That's right, but I got nunmal no tax assessment, 2015.
Well I called the city, the lady said, the communication of 2013/2014 would continue to be valid, since the communication "The communication remains valid over the calendar year also, until a new order is issued" would. Which I held out that this set of 2011 would be in each of the tax bills until 2014 and I still get a new every year without that something had changed in the dog tax bill!
Against this argument the employee was powerless, thus explained the understanding that I would not need the EUR 6,00 overdue fines to pay, assuming I would immediately transfer the amount due, which I did.
My question now: Is it right that the city can claim the dog license without previously shipped communication? Does the phrase "The decision remains valid over the calendar year also, until a new order is issued" really valid, even though it was so far in all tax bills, so I could assume in 2015 again to receive a decision?
I thank in advance for your answers.
