    Greetings.

    I was wondering if "Código Fiscal de la Federación" should be translated in a legal document as it is the specific name of a Mexican Law, and I'm not shure if 'Federal Fiscal Code' or 'Federal Fiscal Law' would do.

    Thanks in advance.

    Code would be better. No estoy seguro del sigificado de "Fiscal" en ese contexto, pero se el Código se ocupa de las operaciones financieras y tributarias, Fiscal cabe. Si se trata de otra clase de fiscalización, recomendaría otra traducción, o dejarla sin traducir.

    Thanks, David.

    I managed to find a couple of -I think, reliable sources. According to them, this term should be translated as "Federal Fiscal Code". Does it make sense to you?

    Cheers!

    The best way to translate this term is:

    Federal Tax Code.

    Hope it's not too late! :)

    Dear Metztli,
    Your translation sounds good to me, but I found some governmental documents where this term is translated as above, "Federal Fiscal Code". (I'd put the URL, but since I'm a relatively new member I'm not yet allowed to do so.)
    Alas, you were too late indeed.
    Thank you very much, anyway! :)

    I agree with Metzli, Federal Tax Code, dounds best, but I don´t know if the code goes beyond taxation to govern government budgetary matters as well, in which case "Fiscal" might be better.

    I think Federal Fiscal Code and Federal Tax Code both sound ok.

    But i agree with David; Fiscal might be better.

    Mixmix and David! Hi! I agree, it sounds better Federal Fiscal Code... however, in formal documents regarding the IRS in Mexico, they use more Federal Tax Code... I should've specified the country I was talking about, right? ;)

    Anyway... have a good one, everybody!
