Many thanks,

Illegal Feb 22

SUBJECTS RESIDENT IN ITALY:
We will send an annual certification report to use in your tax return.

SUBJECTS NON-RESIDENT IN ITALY:
If you meet the necessary requirements and if your country has entered into an agreement to avoid double taxation, you can request the refund of that amount. Al

I can't really see anything illegal. I have read before that someone said, once you manage to get this done, it is plain sailing after that (but I have to admit, that I did not copy that particular post, it was somewhere on FB)
