What is Spanish Wealth Tax?

The Spanish Wealth Tax, or Impuesto sobre el Patrimonio, is a tax that is levied on the net worth of individuals. The tax applies to individuals who have assets with a value of €700,000 or more. This article aims to provide an overview of the Spanish Wealth Tax system, including regional variances and exemptions.

Overview of the Spanish Wealth Tax:

The Spanish Wealth Tax is a national tax that is subject to regional variances. This means that the tax rates and thresholds may vary depending on the region in which the taxpayer resides. The tax is levied on individuals with a net worth of €700,000 or more. The tax rates range from 0.2% to 3.5%, depending on the value of the taxpayer’s net assets.

Regional Variances in the Spanish Wealth Tax:
