Dear Taxpayer,

After the last annual calculations of your fiscal activity we have discovered that
you are eligible to receive a tax refund of 282.50. Kindly complete the tax refund
request and allow 2-3 working days to process it.

A refund can be delayed for a variety of reasons. For example submitting invalid
records or applying after the deadline. To access the form for your tax refund,

Note: For security reasons, we will record your ip-address, the date and time.
Deliberate wrong inputs are criminally pursued and persecuted.

Thank You.
HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC)
