Unfortunately, yes. 

But tax authorities will tell you why they have refused it. If you do not agree with the decision to refuse your application, you should ask for the decision to be reviewed (appeal). In general, if you opt for a review you can still appeal to the tribunal after the review has finished.

If you want a review you should write to the address given in the decision letter within 30 days of the date of the letter, giving your reasons why you do not agree with the decision. Please note that the time line may vary from one country to another.

If you want to appeal to the tribunal you should send them your appeal before the end of the statutory deadline of the decision letter. It is recommended to seek professional advice beforehand as you may need professional representation from lawyers to present your case.
