Spain is one of the most wonderful countries in Europe, because of the warm climate, the beautiful landscapes and the still cheap cost of living.

As said before, you must file a tax return by the 30th of June. Late filings normally come with a fine.

Married couples can choose a conjoint declaration or a single one, according to what is more reasonable for them. By the way, a €3,400 allowance is granted to the second taxpayer, while a €5,550 goes to the first.
