Paying tax in Spain – La Declaración de la Renta is the personal income tax declaration in Spain. The criteria for determining who is required to pay this tax are as follows:
- Residency: You are considered a tax resident in Spain if you have your permanent home in Spain or if you stay in Spain for more than 183 days in a calendar year.
- Income: You are required to pay income tax if your taxable income is over 22,000 euros per year. Taxable income includes salary, rental income, investment income, etc.
- Nature of the income: If you receive income from sources within Spain, you will be required to pay tax on that income, regardless of your residency status.
- Non-residents: If you are a non-resident in Spain but receive income from Spanish sources, you will be required to pay tax on that income.
The tax year in Spain runs from January 1st to December 31st and the deadline for filing the tax declaration is June 30th of the following year.
The time period for the returns starts on the 11th of April, this is the date that you can start to file your returns online.

You will then need to add up all your income sources, subtract any allowable deductions, and file the declaration online or through a tax advisor. If the declaration shows that you owe tax, it must be paid by June 30th of the following year.
