Income tax returns 2016: a dossier to help you with your tax return

Corrective index, value of acquisition, originating and ordinary tax returns. Do you know exactly what all these terms mean? Find out with the UOC Library's dossier.


On 5 April 2017, the period for filing your tax return began. Taxpayers have until midnight on 30 June to file their tax return for the 2016 tax year. This year, the Spanish tax authorities have replaced their software for taxpayers, the program PADRE, with Renta Web. This allows taxpayers to access tax procedures directly online through the website of the tax agency, from their PC, tablet or mobile phone, without the need to download any software.

Time to roll up your sleeves

There is still plenty of time to take care of all the necessary procedures for filing your tax return (check the taxpayers calendar with key dates) and, to make things easier for you, we suggest that you take a look at the dossier on tax law, where you will also find a selection of open-access resources. How can it help you?

  • If you are not familiar with the most common tax-return terminology, the dossier provides a selection of dictionaries with vocabulary used in this field.
  • Do you want to know where your taxes will end up? With this resource from the Library, you will be able to see how the State budgets are distributed, the sources of State income, and where public expenditure is destined. 
  • You will also find a list of the official websites of the tax authority's agencies and institutions and other organizations. These websites contain all the necessary information regarding the management and collection of taxes.
  • In addition, the dossier has a section containing information sources which will help you to get to know the latest news on tax law.
