2. Is the 60-day period to submit supporting documents for a request for reinvestigation under a protest to a Final Assessment Notice/Final Letter of Demand ("FAN/FLD") for deficiency taxes counted from the date of the filing of said protest?

3.

4. When is prior notice and hearing required for a revenue issuance to be valid?

5. What taxes are due on transactions involving real properties considered as ordinary assets?

6. What are the modes of service for warrants of garnishment against the bank deposits of a delinquent taxpayer?
