What’s new in the 2018 Income Tax Return?

The time to make the Income Tax Return for 2018 is approaching and it is convenient to know what deductions we can benefit from in the next finance statement. The period runs from April 2 to July 1 and the most important developments fall on the deduction of habitual residence.

The deduction for habitual residence

The reduction of habitual residence by investment was abolished in January 2013. However, in exchange a transitional regime was established to which those who had bought their house prior to that date could claim on their tax return.

This year, in addition, this deduction for habitual residence may also be requested by those who have allocated amounts to build, extend or rehabilitate their habitual residence or for those who have carried out works to improve the accessibility of disabled people to the home. In this way, the tax relief reaches 15% of the installments that have been paid by mortgages on a maximum amount of € 9,040

If you live in Barcelona

Also, although the reduction by investment is 15% in the aforementioned cases, if you do not fit inside them and live in Catalonia, all is not lost. You can deduct 7.5% if you are under 32, if you have been unemployed for more than 180 days or if you have at least one child. And if you have rented your usual home, enjoy a deduction of 10% of your entire fee. However, you can deduct a maximum of 300 euros.
