Get Ready to File Your 2022 Income Tax return Online
As the end of the year draws near, Spaniards are reminded of their duty to review all the activity carried out during the year and declare it. This is known as the Income Statement, an exercise that every natural person must carry out to be up to date with the Tax Agency.
Filing the 2022 Income Tax is not much different from previous years, but it is essential to keep updated about any changes that may affect your declaration. Here are a few things you should know about Income 2022.
New Changes to Note
For many Spaniards, the Income Tax process is a simple one because they neither have dependents, nor are they a large family or are self-employed. However, it is essential to note that every year, something changes.
One of the great novelties this year is the temporary solidarity tax that is now applied to large fortunes. This means that the highest incomes will have to pay a little more in taxes. It is important to note that only 0.2% of taxpayers will pay it, and in monetary terms, they are those who have assets of more than three million euros.
Another change to this year’s Income Tax is the contribution towards private pension plans. This year, the contribution has been reduced to a total of 1,500 euros from the 2,000 that existed before. An extra restriction has been added, meaning that the amount contributed cannot be more than 30% of the net income.
