It is important to remember, as always, that the tax data comes from information provided by third parties and serves as a basis for calculating the Income, allowing contrasting the differences that may exist between fiscal data and real data. For this reason, it is very important to review the content of the tax data and the draft to avoid possible settlement errors.
