In today’s post we explain everything you need to know about the income tax return. Keep reading to make sure you don’t miss anything!
What is the income tax return?
It is an annual procedure to be carried out by residents in Spain. In this way, some data is provided to the Tax Agency to ensure that everything is legal and transparent. This data will always be from the previous fiscal year, that is, the income you received last year.
The final objective of making the income tax return is to pay the IRPF (personal income tax). That is to say, this tax must be paid according to the net income obtained and the deductible expenses.
Who must make the income tax return?
Any individual resident in Spain for more than 183 calendar days, or who has the basis of his economic activity in the country, is obliged to file the income tax return. However, there are some exceptions:
- If you have received income from a single payer and this does not exceed 22000 euros gross per year.
- In case you have received income from several payers, if these do not exceed 14000 euros gross per year.
- If you have received income from several payers, when the sum of the second and the others does not exceed 1500 euros.
When do you have to do this?
This year 2022, the campaign is open from April 6 to June 30. It can be done online through its website and, according to the Tax Agency itself, the first returns will start to arrive from April 7.
How can you do it?
As we have said, one of the ways to file the income tax return is online through the Tax Agency’s website. To carry out this procedure, it will be necessary to be registered in the electronic system of the Spanish public administrations, the Cl@ve system.
