The notary public in the tax trap
A wealthy private individual wants to transfer a property in the mountains to her son. She wishes to do so in a way that incurs as little tax as possible, with the son making a modest monthly payment. The notary public in question recommends a gift, combined with a property pension. Unfortunately, he neglects to clarify with the tax office whether this transfer is deemed to be free of charge and thus constitutes a tax deferral. The family gets a nasty surprise in the next tax assessment. A furious phone call to the notary public follows: "There will be consequences. We are engaging an attorney."
