The results from a search for the Higgs boson with a mass of about 125 GeV decaying into a pair of tau leptons is reported. The analysis, exploiting all tau lepton decay combinations (hadronic and leptonic), is based on a proton-proton collision data sample collected by the ATLAS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider and corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 20.3 fb-1 recorded at a center-of-mass energy of 8 TeV. Evidence for the existence of Higgs boson decays to pairs of tau leptons, consistent with Standard Model expectations, is shown.
