Around 30,000 people have received a letter from the tax authorities wrongly demanding repayment of healthcare and housing support.
The letters were sent on May 15 and are recalculated final demands for healthcare and housing support in 2007, the Nos reports.
‘If you have received one of these letters, you can assume the demand for repayment is wrong,’ the tax authorities say.
Recipients do not need to do anything. It will be sorted out and a written apology will be sent, the Nos quotes the tax office as saying.
