Chairman's Message

Welcome to the Tax Appeals Tribunal (TAT) website. This website is an important forum in which TAT interfaces with stakeholders, designated agencies, the general public and others.

The tax Appeals Tribunal is a quasi-judicial institution established under the Tax Appeals Tribunals Act, 1997 to settle Tax Disputes between tax payers and the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA).By enhancing this Act, parliament was fulfilling the requirement in Article 152 (3) of the Constitution 1995.

The Tribunal consists of five members, appointed in accordance with the Act. The first Tribunal was first constituted in August 1998. After laying ground for its work which included writing its Rules of procedure and appointment of staff, the Tribunal opened its doors to the public in May 1999.

The Tribunal handles only tax disputes arising out of the taxing Acts administered by URA. Since inception TAT has handled cases ….worth….


TAT is supervised by five Board of Director members with private sector majority. The board oversees a lean …… Staff secretariat that has been growing in number since 1999 due to increased cases being filed at the Tribunal


We shall endeavour to maintain this website for the purposes of communication with all key players in the sector and for public information purposes.
