The temporary tax established by the Government on large fortunes has raised a total of 623 million euros this year. Only 0.1% of all taxpayers have been forced to pay this tax and the 12,010 who have been affected have made an average contribution of 52,000 euros.
The Ministry of Finance pointed out that the “total practice” of the citizens who have been affected by this tax live in autonomous communities in which the wealth tax has been “given up.” Furthermore, he stressed that this measure contributes to the creation of a “more progressive fiscal policy.”
The reason why most of the collection comes from communities that partially or completely subsidize the wealth tax is that only the part of large fortunes that are not taxed by the wealth tax is taxed.
Both taxes collect 1,868 million
The temporary solidarity tax on large fortunes, approved for the years 2023 and 2024, affects net assets exceeding 3 million euros, accrues on December 31 of each year and the presentation of the declaration occurs between 1 and on July 31.
According to the details of the Treasury, the total collection from the tax on large fortunes and the wealth tax amounts to more than 1,868 million euros this year, a figure in line with the Government’s forecasts.
