Can anyone give some advice or insight into a shock
Can anyone give some advice or insight into a shock tax bill I've received 2 years and 11 months after purchasing my house in Tuscany? I've received, out of the blue, a brief email from the estate agents that the sale of my property was made through. In it they attach a form, all in Italian (which I don't speak), and they say in the email that the taxes I paid on the property have been adjusted by the Italian tax office and I now have to pay over 2000 euros more. I have 30 days to pay. The agents are claiming that the tax office tried to contact me at my Italian address and my British address - both of which were known to the estate agent. I received absolutely nothing directly from the tax office. The agents are also saying the tax office has added interest since the date that I bought the property and that this is all permissible and legal under the 'presentation' of the sale.
I've asked the estate agents by email if they can help me to process the form - I quite literally don't know where to send it and whether this needs to be by email or post of something else. The agents are not responding.
I'm not sure, but the very brief, 'factual' way the agents sent the email and the form seems to indicate the possibility that there is something wrong here. Anyone with any experience of similar? I'd love to receive any advice at all.
Many thanks !
