The electronic presentation of form 228, "Request for refund for exemption for reinvestment in habitual residence for taxpayers of the European Union and the European Economic Area with effective exchange of tax information", can be made from the electronic headquarters of the Tax Agency through a form that is completed online and submitted directly.
Access to the form requires identification by means of a certificate or electronic DNI . In addition to the owner of the declaration, it can also be presented by a third party acting on his or her behalf, whether a social collaborator or an agent to carry out the procedure.
After identification, you will access the form. Complete all the requested data, mainly those corresponding to the fields marked with an asterisk, which are mandatory.
Once the form has been completed, it is advisable to check if there are any warnings or errors using the "Validate declaration" button. At the bottom, any errors or warnings detected will be displayed. Press "Go to Notice" or "Go to Error" to go to the specific box you need to review or correct.
Remember that the notices are informative and do not prevent the presentation. Instead, errors must be corrected in order to file the return.
Once the declaration has been correctly validated, the message "There are no errors" will be displayed and you will be able to submit the declaration by clicking on the "Formalize Deposit / Return" button.
A new window will be displayed from which, if you wish, you can generate a file in BOE format, by clicking on the "Export" button. The name of the resulting file is formed by the NIF of the declarant, the fiscal year and the period, and the extension, by the model number ( NIF _exercise_period.228).
