Spanish Inheritance Tax in the Valencia Region

A comprehensive list of allowances that you can avail of in order to reduce your liability for Spanish inheritance tax.
Article Last Updated: 17 May, 2024 under Inheritance

Many people who inherited or received a gift of property in the Comunidad Valenciana Region received  a “supplementary demand” for inheritance tax (Impuesto sobre Sucesiones y Donaciones). This was based on an increased valuation of the property by the tax authority in the Valencia Region. 

The tax authority was using powers conferred upon it to change the valuations but the Superior Court in Valencia has ruled that while the relevant powers permitted the tax authority to do so in relation to certain taxes, this did not extend to  Spanish inheritance tax

As a result, the door has been opened for those who received tax demands from the tax authority in Valencia to make an appeal against these tax demands and recover the overpayment with interest.

Rosa is an experienced and highly sought-after English-speaking lawyer who provides expert legal advice and assistance in the following legal areas: Property conveyances, Inheritance, Family law, Criminal law, Business set-up and Employment law.
I cannot say enough good things about working with Rosa. She helped me get my Spanish visa and was with me every step of the way from start to finish. I had innumerable questions about navigating the complex waters of the Spanish immigration system, and Rosa was able to give me clear, concise answers to everything I asked. I would email her in the evening with a list of questions and first thing in the morning, like clockwork, would be her detailed email response answering all of my questions. I also found that there were many fine details about the visa application process Rosa knew about that were not specified on the Spanish consulate's website. Had I not had her guidance about doing these things, I'm sure my application would not have been approved. Thanks to Rosa I now have my Spanish visa, and I am happily living in Spain. I am looking forward to working with her again next year when it comes time for my one year visa renewal.
