“The Tax and Customs Authority (AT) is aware that some taxpayers are receiving emails supposedly from the AT, with an attachment to allegedly proceed with the regularisation of the tax situation”, reads the alert published in the Finance Portal.

An example of the body of the messages with which the taxpayer is "confronted" may be the "sending of the declaration and tax execution process for the collection of tax debts" and to which it is recommended to proceed with the tax regularisation following a link that is provided and which, the tax authorities warn, is fraudulent.

“These messages are false and should be ignored. Its objective is to convince the recipient to download malicious software", warns the AT, stressing that "in no case" should the taxpayer "carry out this operation".

The Tax Authorities recommend reading the information sheet on Computer Security available on the Finance Portal.
