What is personal income tax form 130?

Form 130 of Personal Income Tax must be presented by the self-employed in the Treasury to settle the fractional payment of personal income tax. It is totally mandatory for any self-employed worker who develops his economic activity in direct, normal or simplified estimation.

It consists of a quarterly statement of income and expenses,through which an advance of 20% is paid on account of your income tax return for income from economic activity.

If at the end of the year the Personal Income Tax paid through form 130 has been higher than the corresponding for your real income, the difference will be refunded to you in the Income Tax return. But if instead you have obtained a high income, it is possible that the advances have not been enough, and you have to overpayment in the income tax return.

Keep in mind that personal income tax is a progressive tax,which means that the more a taxpayer earns, the higher the percentage of personal income tax they will have to pay.

When is form 130 of Personal Income Tax presented?

As we have mentioned, form 130 of Personal Income Tax is presented quarterly:

  • First quarter: from 1 to 20 April, both inclusive.
  • Second quarter: from 1 to 20 July, both inclusive.
  • Third quarter: from 1 to 20 October, both inclusive.
  • Fourth quarter: from 1 to 30 January, both inclusive.

In case the deadline coincides with a public holiday, the deadline is automatically extended until the next working day,being able to present it without suffering any type of sanction.

And in the event that you present form 130 after the deadline, the Treasury will apply a penalty or surcharge on the payment of the tax, as established in article 27 of the General Tax Law.

The surcharge will depend on the delay time, as well as whether the return has gone out to enter or return.

In case the Treasury has not sent a prior request warning of the delay, you will have to pay the interest for having paid it after the deadline. But if you have also been sent a request, to the interests you will have to add the corresponding sanction.
