It is inadmissible to the writ of appeal served by certified mail since this method of service that contrasts with both the rules governing the tax process (in particular the combined provisions of art. 53, paragraph 2, and 20, paragraph 1 and 2, Legislative Decree no. 546/92), both with the provisions contained in the rules for the use of certified electronic mail (68/2005 DPR).

The latter, in fact, totally accepting the submissions of the association, they said that “what determines the admissibility of the appeal is that an appeal of the sentence was carried out by so different from what establishes the combined provisions of art.53, paragraph 2, and 20, paragraphs 1 and 2, of Legislative Decree no. 546/92. It should be noted, in fact, that for the notification of complaints and appeals by e-mail certified, still currently exists an express exclusion under Article 16 paragraph 4 of the Regulation laying down rules for the use of certified electronic mail … ».
In light of the above, therefore, the notification of the act pec appeal determines the inadmissibility of the latter.
