Lately there have been an increasing number of cases in which professionals and companies are receiving financial penalties from the Administration for not paying attention to electronic notifications. A communication that is received with great surprise by taxpayers who normally are not aware of having committed any administrative infraction since these actions are usually generated by failure to comply with deadlines, failure to submit information required by the agencies, etc.
According to the latest legal updates, disregarding requests for information from public bodies such as the Tax Authorities, for example, may constitute an act of “resistance, obstruction, excuse or refusal” and the Administration acts instantly by applying fines for large sums of money.
According to the latest news, tax authorities can fine taxpayers up to 600,000 euros for not accessing the “inbox”. This has been stipulated in a recent resolution by the Central Economic-Administrative Court (TEAC) in which it sets the deadline of 10 days to attend to the electronic notifications sent to the user in question by the organism. If after this period there has been no response and/or action on the part of the taxpayer, the organism understands that it is a case of neglect and/or refusal, and therefore it can proceed to process the corresponding fine without it being necessary to prove the intention to circumvent the requirement sent. It is sufficient that it has been “duly notified”. Article 203 of the tax law considers that “failure to comply with a duly notified requirement” is a serious infringement and establishes a system of fines ranging, depending on the information requested, from 150 euros to 600,000 euros or a percentage of the turnover of the offender in the calendar year in which the non-compliance occurred.
As the TEAC concludes in this resolution, it is sufficient that the taxpayer has been informed of its inclusion in the mandatory system of electronic notifications and duly notified. When a taxpayer knows that he is obliged to receive all his communications by electronic means, not accessing his authorized e-mail address or the electronic headquarters of the AEAT at least every ten days implies assuming that the notification of the acts that the Tax Administration tries to bring to his attention may be understood to have been rejected. Even, it points out, it can mean a disregard for their tax obligations.
