GENERAL INDICATIONS RELATING TO THE TAX SCHEME IN THE REGION OF NAVARRE.
PREMIUM TAX SCHEME
The premiums paid by insured parties for insured pension plans that fulfil the regulatory requirements may be deducted from the IRPF taxable amount, the maximum limit being the lesser of the following two amounts:
- 30 percent of the sum of the net income from earnings and financial activities received individually during the financial year. This percentage will be 50 percent for taxpayers over the age of 50.
- 6,000 euro per annum. Nevertheless, for taxpayers over the age of 50, this amount will be 7,000 euro.
This maximum limit is a combined amount for all payments and contributions to pension plan systems.
Regardless of the deduction applied based on the aforementioned limits, taxpayers whose spouse does not obtain any net income from earnings and financial activities, or who obtains less than 8,500 per annum for such income, may deduct from the taxable amount the contributions made to pension plan systems held by said spouse, with a maximum limit of 2,000 euro per annum (these contributions are not subject to ISD).
When the contributions that are deductible from the taxable amount exceed the established maximum limit, the amounts corresponding to said surplus may be deducted in the following five tax years.
Contributions made to insured pension plans in favour of people with a certain level of disability and kinship may also be deducted from the taxable amount, pursuant to the regulatory limits prevailing at any time (these contributions are not subject to ISD):
All the aforementioned deduction limits are combined for the sum of the contributions made by the taxpayer to pension plans, mutual insurance pension plans, insured pension plans, company pension plans and dependency insurance policies.
