Can anybody help me with taxes?
I was a resident in Spain for several years before returning back to the UK in September 2007. Up until that point I had declared my taxes annual at the regional tax office and always seem to get a rebate. I had good intensions of doing the same this year for 2007 but looked to have missed the boat!
a) Can I declare my taxes for 2007 in 2009?
b) Would I have been classed as a resident for that year, even though I left half way through the year?
I intend to start paying as a non-resident next year on form 214 etc, but I’m concerned they will fine me for the missing year.

They will add a surcharge for late payment but from memory it’s not onerous. It’s certainly not a massive fine.
You will need to attach proof of when you left Spain, or make a declaration. Whether you will be deemed to be tax resident will depend on the number of days spent in Spain.

As ashtondav points out, if in 2007 you spent more than 183 days in Spain holding ‘residencia’ then you are not subject to non-residents Income and Wealth tax for that year.

Even more confused now, I was led to believe the abolition of Wealth tax didn’t come in until jan 08 hence I would be liable for the year 2007?

Does anyone know can a catastral value be appealed ?
I am in Estepona.
They have given me a catastral value same as purchase price
I thought that CV was always lower than catastal value

Martin, you would be better off posting this as a new thread or try andalucia.com’s forum as I’m pretty sure there is someone on there who has appealed a catastral revaluation.

You are liable for 2007. Get cracking!
As a non resient you may still have to complete the form for 2008 even if the tax is rescinded. No one knows yet.
