May I know more details about the tax deductions in Spain?


Tax deductions in Spain are available to individuals and businesses alike. For individuals, the most common tax deduction is the Personal Income Tax (IRPF). This deduction allows taxpayers to reduce their taxable income by a certain percentage depending on their income level. Other deductions include those for mortgage interest payments, donations to charities, medical expenses, and contributions to pension plans.

@Anderson, yes, but there are some points to consider:

State deduction: you can include this in your tax declaration if you have been living in the same rental apartment since before the year of 2017, also if you have renewed your contract or prolonged it. You are allowed to deduct 10.05% of your rent on a maximum amount of €9,040 per year, so there is a maximum of €904 that can be deducted from the rent of the property on your income tax return.

Regional deduction: every autonomous region decides on its own conditions.


For example, in Catalunia it is possible to deduct 10% of the rent with the maximum of 300 euros per year and 600 euros per family. There are following requirements you need to meet:

  • You are 32 years old or younger or widow/-er 65 y.o. or older
  • You have been unemployed for than 183 days per tax year
  • you have a disability degree of 65% or more
  • the total taxable amount may not exceed 20,000 euros and 30,000 euros for big families.
  • the rent is more than 10% of your net income
