Spanish Tax Reclaim

There has been some great news recently that will affect people who sold a Spanish property between 1997 and 2006. There has been a European court ruling that says the Spanish Tax Authourites have unfairly treated EU residents by the dis-parity in captial gains taxes levied.

Spanish nationals only had to pay 15%, where other EU sellers were required to make a payment of 35%. This action is seen to be disciminatory and now it is possible for the victims of this gross over charging to take action. To make a Spanish tax reclaim you must take note of the following requirements

You must not have been a fiscal Spanish resident during the sale of your property
You must be able to gain access to the documentation proving you payment (form Modelo 212)
You must have access to your title deeds and sales documentation
You must be an EU citizen

If you can comply with the above requirements then you may well be able to reclaim Spanish tax
