Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
NO, there is no "tax" to get money you lost from fraud back. In fact, if you were called by a "Mexican legal officer" and asked for the money before anything can be sent back to you, they are generally someone who is part of the fraud. Legally, if there were any money due to the Mexican government (there is not if all they are doing is allegedly returning money from a fraud) they would simply deduct it from the money they were sending you. This is an advance payment scam and you should stop dealing with this person.
