Every year the Spanish tax authorities publish a classification of cities and municipalities with a population of at least one thousand based on income tax returns. The village of San Lorenzo de la Parilla, with a population of 1,066, was ranked 2,038 in 2020. But in 2021, the village suddenly became 77 in the world rankings. According to the Spanish newspaper El Pais, the credit for this goes to one person who announced an income of more than 10 million euros in 2021. “One taxpayer changed the statistics and the average increased.” City Mayor Virginia Martinez said: “The city’s economy has nothing to do with this result.” “.
No one knows who this millionaire is. Various rumors are spreading in the small village. Some people think he is a marble dealer, others think he is a granite seller, a furniture maker, or an oil producer. Then there is a third option: the lucky EuroMillions jackpot winner who has been silent about it all this time.
