Inheritance Tax in Spain.

How long do I have to pay inheritance in Spain? Who pays the plusvalia tax? A term of six months is granted for tax settlement following the date of the deceased’s passing. Fulfillment of tax obligations is a prerequisite before effecting the transfer of property ownership in the Land Registry. The procedure of duty payment and the subsequent registration of the new title deed in the Land Registry are obligatory processes, indispensable for any property transaction.

Plusvalía (Capital Gains)

The plusvalia has to be paid when receiving a property (inheritance or gift) and when the property is sold.

The Spanish Supreme Court ruled that if there is no actual gain when selling a property, the council should not charge and the taxpayer has the right to claim it back.

  1. Determining the Value of Inherited Assets: The first step is to determine the value of what each heir is going to inherit. If you are the spouse or child of the deceased and lived in the same home as the deceased for at least 2 years before their death, you can reduce the value of the house by 95%, with a maximum reduction of 150,000 euros.
  2. Exempt Amount: The exempt amount varies depending on the family relationship with the deceased:

– Group I:Children and adopted children under 21 years of age have an exempt amount in the Valencia Region ranging from 100,000 euros to 156,000 euros, depending on the child’s age.

– Group II: This includes children and adopted children over 21 years of age, spouses, parents, and grandparents, with an exempt amount of 100,000 euros.

– Group III: This group comprises brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and stepchildren (not adopted), with a deduction of 7,993.46 euros.

– Group IV: This group includes more distant relatives and strangers, and there is no deduction.

  1. Sliding Scale: A sliding scale is applied to what each heir receives, ranging from 7% to 36.5%.
  2. Multiplier: The final amount is multiplied by a factor that depends on the relationship of the beneficiary with the deceased:

– Group I and II: Multiply by 1.

– Group III: Multiply by 1.5882.

– Group IV: Multiply by 2.

  1. Pre-Existing Wealth: If the pre-existing wealth of the heir is over 402,678 euros, the multiplier can be higher.
  2. Time Limit for Filing: You need to present your return within six months of the inheritance.
  3. Reductions: In the Valencia Region, there are generous reductions in the final bill for certain heirs:

– If the estate is received by children of the deceased who are under 21 years of age, the deduction is 75%.

– If the estate is received by children over 21 or by the spouse, the deduction is 50%.
