Hi Amar,
 
The first place I look is on Coin.Dance’s political page:
 

Portugal


 
Two articles of interest are linked there, the first appears to be a statement from the Portugese central bank declaring Bitcoin to be legal:
 
https://www.bportugal.pt/comunicado/esclarecimento-do-banco-de-portugal-sobre-bitcoin
 
The second is a statement by the Court of Justice of the European Union which declares the exchange of Bitcoin for fiat money as VAT-exempt (or at least, that’s my understanding without having read it):
 
https://curia.europa.eu/jcms/upload/docs/application/pdf/2015-10/cp150128en.pdf
