Abstract


The article analyses the manifestation of the assignment of tax receivables in terms of finding a solution regarding the growth of public budgets revenues, and counteracting the alarming increase in tax arrears.

Also, the article presents an analysis of the historical data recorded in terms of applicability of tax receivables assignment in Romania.

In terms of functional market economy, the Romanian tax administration bears the responsibility and burden of accumulated debts, of which a considerable amount is considered irrecoverable. Considering this, a significant proportion is represented by arrears that are at least one year old, which is why consistent growth of debts not received by the due date, often over one year old, imposed the need to identify urgent solutions and measures to counteract this phenomenon.
