Taxpayers who in 2020 they hired a person to take care of to, at least, a child under the age of twelve, can already benefit from a discount on the income statement of up to 400 euros. This is one of the three regional personal income tax deductions implemented this year by the Ministry of Economy, Finance and Digital Administration with the aim of offering financial support to families who made conciliation contracts as a result of the pandemic. The Ministry, which articulates this measure through the Tax Agency of the Region of Murcia, estimates that this new regional deduction may translate into a economic savings of about 600,000 euros for more than a thousand families, according to sources from the regional government in a statement.
Specifically, people who have hired a person to care for or care for descendants under twelve years of age can benefit from this measure, for which contributions are made to the Special System for Household Employees of the General Social Security Scheme. Thus, they can deduct 20% of the fees paid for such contributions, up to a limit of 400 euros.
For the application of the deduction, certain requirements must be met, such as: the taxpayer is registered with Social Security as the employer of a family home, who has had one or more people hired during 2020 by the Special System of Household Employees of the General Social Security Scheme, and who has contributed for that person or people.
Likewise, and given that the objective of the Ministry is to benefit those taxpayers with lower income levels, the amount resulting from the sum of the general tax base and the savings tax base must not exceed the amount of 34,000 euros, in the family unit. The Minister of Economy, Finance and Digital Administration, Javier Celdrán, stressed that “this is a new deduction of a social nature, which wants to provide economic relief for people with lower incomes who have had to make contracts for conciliation. In the current scenario, this type of support is essential ”.
The Ministry launched two other new regional deductions that come into force in this income campaign: for people with a degree of disability of 33% or higher (100 euros), and for taxpayers who have received unpaid income from people over 65 and / or people with disabilities (up to 600 euros).
Rest of deductions
The ten deductions that were already in effect are applied for home acquisition or rehabilitation by people up to 35 years of age; for donations for the protection of cultural heritage or cultural and sports activities; by donations for biosanitary research; daycare expenses; by birth or adoption; for the acquisition of school supplies and textbooks; for investment in renewable energy facilities; for investment in water saving devices, for investment in new entities, and for investments in entities of the alternative stock market.
