Judgments on Right to exemption

Saturday, February 26, 2011
Right to exemption

Right to exemption — An exemption is nothing but a freedom from an obligation which an assessee is otherwise liable to discharge — In a fiscal statute, an exemption has been held to be a concession granted by the state so that the beneficiaries of such concession are not required to pay the tax or the duty they are otherwise liable to pay under such statute — The beneficiary of a concession has no legally enforceable right against the government to grant a concession except to enjoy the benefits of the concession during the period of its grant — The right to exemption or concession is a right that can be taken away under the very power in exercise of which the exemption was granted.
