For any students of English here, there's a difference between "last year" and "the !ast year", and the tenses we use with them:
"Last year, the taxes were very high"
("last year" = Jan - Dec of the previous year, we use Past Simple)
"In the last year, the taxes have been very high"
("the last year" = 12 months till now, we use Present Perfect)
