The latest news we have, is that there are likely to be significant cuts in income tax in the election year of 2015. The average reduction in Spanish income tax will be 12.5%, and 72% of those earning up to €24,000 will be as much as 23.5% better off, according to the Hacienda. In addition, the bands of tax are being reduced to 5 from 7.
Taxes on savings are also being reduced over the next 2 years, to the levels we saw in 2011. In addition, there are other tax benefits for families and small and medium-sized companies
