    From The Telegraph:

    British owners of Spanish holiday homes have been refunded at least €3.3 million (£2.6m) in punitive taxes they should never have been charged.

    The Spanish authorities are being forced to repay millions of euros to Britons who were overcharged for inheritance tax.

    There is another €7 million’s worth of claims in the pipeline being handled by Barcelona-based law firm Spanish Legal Reclaims.

    The article goes on to say that as many as 100,000 people could have been overcharged €300m in Inheritance Tax, and that’s just the British.

    Of course, this being Spain, claiming your money back from the taxman ain’t easy.
