Urgent tax update! November 2012
In 2011, letters were issued to Spanish property owners warning them that there was no record of any tax declaration being made. This was followed in 2012 by a series of tax demands to those who had not responded. Now, some owners of Spanish property have found that outstanding taxes have been removed directly from their bank accounts. To find out if this might happen to you, click here.
What must I pay?
You must pay for each property:
- Local Taxes (Council Tax, IBI)
- Government Taxes (Income Tax)
These taxes are paid directly to your Town Hall or via the SUMA offices. They are a form of Council Tax.
These taxes are paid to the Agencia Tributaria (Tax Authority). They are an income tax on your property. You must pay income tax whether you rent out your property or not.
This means that all Spanish holiday home owners should be paying at least 2 taxes. Do not try to avoid these, they may be lower than you think.
What happens if I don’t pay?
Tax evaders have:
- Fines to pay
- Bank accounts embargoed
- Property embargoed
The Spanish Tax Authority sends notification of any outstanding taxes to your house in Spain. If you do not act upon this notification then it can lead to embargoes being applied.
