The Spanish Inheritance and Gift Tax reclaim
In September 2014 the European Court of Justice passed a Judgment declaring the Spanish inheritance and gift tax laws were discriminatory towards non-residents and against the EU Treaty.
European Court of Justice’s ruling
The laws in Spain regulating inheritance and gift tax treated residents and non-residents differently until January 2015. Non-residents had to pay much higher taxes while residents were practically exempt.
According to European Court of Justice’s ruling, this constituted a clear breach of the rules and regulations concerning non-discrimination and freedoms as laid down in the EU Treaty.
As a result, European citizens who have paid inheritance and gift tax to the Spanish Authorities before January 2015 are entitled to make a claim for recovering their taxes back (on average +20 % more in legal interest).
Claims will be refunded within 6-8 months (average) once filed.
