About personal income tax and pensions – Vinaros News

When I was still an active worker, during the IRPF period, I used to write writings commenting on some new development or other aspect that had drawn my attention to what was considered one of the most important taxes in Spain.

After a few years without any opinion, let me give you a combination of this year’s income and pension statement. First, I’ll tell you from personal experience, which as anyone who follows me knows, I’m not inclined to explain.

My mother, who is 92, was admitted to a nursing home and has a recognized Tier 2 dependency level which, when it comes to making an income, is useless because she should have recognized the degree of disability. Perhaps the competent authority could have done both things at the same time, but this is not the case.

In March 2023, I requested his evaluation but did not receive the decision until April 2024. They gave him 75% disability.

According to the regulations governing the IRPF, we can deduct assets as long as their total income does not exceed €8,000 (including exempt income and my mother’s income in this case because it exceeds 66% which is the percentage of which is considered an “absolute” disability).

Like the vast majority of retirees in this country, my mother receives a pension. It is better to say two halves, because one is for retirement and the other is for widowhood. In total, he receives the minimum amount, i.e. about 10,900 euros in 2023, the financial year declared in this year’s income.

So, and you don’t have to be a maths prodigy, if you have the right to deduct an asset whose income does not exceed 8,000 euros and my mother earns more than 10,000 euros, then I can’t deduct it.

It is true that the current socialist government has significantly increased pensions in recent years, but on the other hand it has not changed the maximum amount that allows it to deduct upwards, as the previous governments of the People’s Party and the Socialist Workers’ Party did.

Do you know which year was the last year in which the minimum pension was less than 8,000 euros? According to BBVA sources in 2006 (7966.98). Therefore, from that distant date, only ancestors who had “no income” could be deducted, at least from the SS pension system, the state’s negative classes or other bodies.

What do I mean by that? During all these years, the state has saved itself a large amount thanks to its inability to deduct assets and only with This saving (Which I obviously can’t quantify) They could raise the pensions by a few tenths more.

If we take the CPI as a starting point for increasing salary costs, rents, SMEs, etc., why is it not taken into account when raising other standards such as what we are referring to and which has not changed for 20 years?
