If an appeal is declared 'Upheld' does that mean it's agreed?

The decision on a tax appeal has been Upheld - er, sorry if it sounds dumb - but that's good right??!!

Upheld mean the original decision is "upheld" and nothing has changed. I do not think that is good if you were the one that appealed.

I don't think so. Generally when something is upheld, it agrees with the previous position. Generally an appeal "overturns" the previous position.

It means the Apelleate court has upheld the decion of the lower court; in other words endorsed it or confirmed it.

Yup! But what was "upheld" the appellant's case or the revenue case?
