These are the taxes one must pay while owning a property in Spain, including also taxes on rental income if it is an investment property.
Property owners must pay the Property Tax (IBI) once a year. This payment can be divided into different instalments. The IBI is calculated through a coefficient of the cadastral value, determined by each Council, which generally ranges between 0.4% and 1.3%.
This tax is limited to high net worth individuals and only applies to those with a taxable income of more than 700,000 euros. The taxable base will measure the tax rate:
There are other less frequent taxes such as waste or water charges. These taxes consist of the payment of fees for the collection of urban waste or the use of running water in isolated urbanisations.
In case of having a second residence, this must be accounted for in the annual income tax return, in which the owner has to pay a tax rate on the cadastral value of the property.
Generally, a 2% tax rate is applied to the cadastral value that appears in the Property Tax. In case the cadastral value is not determined or has been revised or modified by valuation in the previous 10 years, 1.1% is applied.
If you decide to rent the property you will have to pay 24% of the income perceived without any cost deductions. However, if you reside in a EU country (also Island and Norway are included) the rate decreases to 19% and you are also entitled to deduct any rental costs. The declaration should be done every trimestre.
