Hi all, advice needed for an elderly gent who is not computer savi. He has been living in Spain for approximately 3 years. Paid cash for his property & went through a reputable company when buying. He was advised to get his own gestor and this he did. After about a year he received a registered letter for himself & his wife from a tax collecting agent for a few thousand euros. He took the letters to the gestor. He said it’s fine & he will deal with it,and he did. Paid it straight into there bank. By the way, the gent has a state pension & his wife a small works pension. To cut this short. The following year. Same again for 6 thousand euros. & this year just over 10 thousand euros. The gestor paid it straight back into their bank. Any advice will be gratefully received. Thank you.

Hi Mutt,

What was the name of the "tax collecting agency"?  Was it Agencia Tributaria?  Or SUMA?  Something else?  

When you say that the gestor "paid it straight into there bank" sic, do you mean he paid his client's money into the collecting agency's bank account?

If this is a genuine bill, it should be quite easy to check, but difficult to offer advice without clarification on these points.

Kind regards, 

Kim
