Inheritance tax in Spain can swallow-up a huge percentage of any inheritance, so how can liability for probate tax in Spain be reduced?
As previously stated, regional governments have greatly reduced or eradicated inheritance taxes for close family members up to varying maximum amounts. The scope of the exemptions is determined by the region in which you are resident.
This can be a disputed matter and legislation exists to determine which region’s laws are to be applied where there is a conflict. In many cases, the location of a property determines the regional law to be applied where it is the subject of an inheritance.
