Spain 2014 General State Budget Bill
29 Oct. 2013

The economical measures within the structural reforms approved on December 2011 by the Spanish Government raised certain taxes temporarily to offset the forecast deficit drift. A supplementary solidarity surcharge was levied on work income and capital income for 2012 and 2013. Art. 64 of the 2014 draft budget has proposed an extension of the surcharges for 2014.
In contrast, it has been also proposed to hold Wealth Tax in abeyance again for 2014.
