1. Prescription.

The prescription is a means of getting rid of assets or liabilities, by the course of some time, and under conditions established by law. The acquisition of property under possession, is called positive prescription, the release of obligations by not enforceable, called negative prescription.

On taxation there institution called prescription, just only in its negative form or liberatory, ie only exists as a way for the debtor to avoid obligations.

The art. 146 of the Federal Tax Code provides for the prescription, and this legal device can draw the following conclusions:

a) The existence of the limitation on tax matters with liberatory effects.

b) The term for which the institution operates is 5 years, subject to termination or suspension.

c) The term begins to run from the obligation becomes due.

d) The requirement is enforceable by way of action or by way of exception.

Other points are also important in this respect:

* Credit is legally required when not paid or guaranteed within the period prescribed by law.

* For that moment you can invoke the exception action or we can say that:

a) is valued as an action when the elapse of the period of limitation for credit, requested the tax authorities declaring that the credit requirements.

b) is valued as an exception, being notified when a loan is considered prescribed worth doing is contested among other concepts prescription nullity.

* The term is interrupted every collection management (ie any action by the authority in implementing administrative procedure, provided that the debtor made known), or notify the creditor notifies the debtor or by the express recognition or tacit (indirectly by any recognized the existence of the debt or tax credit), the prescription has the effect of lost time elapsed before the collection management or recognition of the debt, to start again the term of 5 years.

* The term stands suspended when a remedy and credit guarantees or overwhelms, suspending the administrative procedure of implementation and therefore unenforceable credit, the suspension has resulted in a failure or just not at the time for prescription while not definitively resolve the dispute through asserted.

2. Expiration.

The institution of revocation (Article 67 of the CFF) in federal tax corresponds neither agrees with the essential features of the expiration Precista figure elsewhere in the Mexican federal law, since in the latter case, the expiration is ina institution procedural, ie always occurs within the context of a process, while federal tax expiration has no such features.

* Institution of a procedural nature, character adjective, ie, is an institution that is closely linked to the exercise of the powers of the authorities.

* It is a figure that generates extinctive effects, ie by it disappear and such powers of certain authorities.

* Operates over time, so that effects egenre extinctive als powers regarding them is required not utilized within a certain period.

* The term required to operate is that the shelf life of 5 years and must in that case counted by calendar days. (Article 12 C.F.F.).

* The powers susceptible to extinction through expiration are only for verifying compliance with the tax provisions, the determination of unpaid taxes and penalties finally.

e) Period of revocation. – are 3 deadlines for expiration update namely three years, five years and ten years, each corresponding to different assumptions.

f) The period of revocation. – The art. 67 of the Federal Tax Code establishes different deadlines:

The expiration term when it comes to contributions which are not designed for exercise starts from the day following the date of submission or should have made the declaration.

The period of revocation begins to impose sanctions on the day following that on which the offense was committed to fiscal provisions, but if the offense is of a continuing or repeated, the term shall run from the day following that consummation has ceased or has taken place, the last behavior or event, respectively.
