The Spanish Tax Agency has refunded 4.9 billion euros to over 7.4 million taxpayers in the first two months of the 2020 Personal Income Tax campaign.

The Agency is expecting that 21.5 million declarations will be made in total, 2.1 percent more than last year. Just over two-thirds of taxpayers can expect a refund.

More than 359,000 declarations have been made via the Agency’s app and 778,000 statements made by phone using the “We Call You” service.

The ‘We Call You’ service follows the same model as face-to-face meetings in tax offices around the country

Once the taxpayer requests an appointment either online or by dialling 901 12 12 24 or 91 535 73 26 they can choose a morning or afternoon appointment.

In general terms, taxpayers with income exclusively from work up to an amount of 22,000 euros per year are not required to make a declaration. However, this limit is reduced if the income comes from more than one payer (with exceptions), or also when the payer is not obliged to withhold and when the income is subject to a fixed rate of withholding. In such cases, the limit is 14,000 euros per year.
