These letters are being sent en-masse to non-resident property owners in Spain. The correspondence requests that all those non-residents that owned property in Spanish territory in 2010 and /or 2011 present a tax declaration for that period within 10 days from the date of receipt of the letter.
This campaign has been devised so that the high number of non- residents who do not make a tax declaration in Spain, even though they own a property, are made aware of their tax obligations.
Many property owners, who live in Spain for less than 183 days, and therefore do not have the obligation to become fiscal residents, do not realize that they are still obliged by law to make a declaration for deemed income as an owner of a property.
Tax in Spain
Therefore, if you own a property and are not filing your annual income tax in Spain, (in May and June each year), you should be aware that you must file a Tax Declaration on the form “Modelo 210” every year. The period for the presentation of this declaration is from 1st January to 31st December each year.
If you have received one of these letters or wish to make any queries regarding your personal tax obligations in Spain do not hesitate to consult a Lawyer or a Tax Advisor.
