The European rules on State aid are decisive regulatory tools which play a key role in taxation. The case law has developed a relevant approach in order to adapt State aid regulations to taxation. One of the substantial elements to assess State aid, the selectivity element, is decisive in tax matters and raises significant issues. In this context, this paper focuses with a critical perspective on the analysis carried out by the EU judicature for the enforcement of this element and it proposes other tracks which may be introduced as alternatives.
