A total of 7,399,000 taxpayers have already received refunds of more than 4,895 million euros after the first two months of the 2021 Personal Income Tax (IRPF) campaign, so that 80.8% of the refund requests made so far and 73.4% of the amounts to be refunded that have been requested have already been paid.
To date, the Tax Agency notes that it has paid out an equivalent number of refunds to those paid last year at the same time, although the number of refund submissions themselves is slightly down, by 1.6% in number and 1.7% in amount.
At the same time, more than 2,966,000 tax returns have already been filed with a deposit result (+9%) by taxpayers who have opted to speed up the filing process, as they do not have to make the first payments until the end of the tax year.
The campaign is now reaching its final third and, in total, 12,990,000 taxpayers have already filed their tax returns through non-face-to-face means, 164,000 more than last year at the same time (+1.3%).
In the campaign as a whole, 21,921,000 tax returns are expected to be filed, 0.9% more than last year, and of this total, 14,350,000 are expected to be entitled to a refund (two thirds of the total and 1.1% more than last year) for an estimated amount of 11,122 million euros (5.8% more).
Also, 5,971,000 tax returns are expected to be paid (1.5% less), amounting to 13.4 billion euros.
