Decrease of the scale of Income tax in Spain (IRPF)

Congratulations! The decrease of the scale of Income tax for Natural persons for the year 2016 will be applied already in 2015.

We already talked about the scales of tax percentages of the income tax for the year 2014, 2015 and 2016 in our article of 11.05.2015. Nevertheless, the government has decided to apply this reduction already in the month of July 2015. This means that in our tax return of the year 2015, we have to apply already the percentage that was foreseen for the year 2016. In the same fiscal year, not one scales will be applied.
