Jorge Lorenzo has won his legal battle against the Spanish tax authorities. They demanded payment of over 11 million euros from him. 7,8 million euros due to his income in 2016 and a fine of 3,6 million euros.
The court found that the tax authorities could not prove that Lorenzo's residence in 2016 was in Spain. As he defended himself, he lived in Switzerland at the time. He was shown to have spent 168 days in Spain that year, down from 183 days. It is a limit above which the payment of taxes is mandatory.
For Lorenzo, this is the second court victory, after he had to pay as much as 2021 million euros in 35 due to his income between 2013 and 2015. Even then, he managed to prove that he had a residence in Switzerland during that period.
