How to get the reference number of the Income Tax file using box 505 from the 2021 tax year
The service for obtaining the income tax file reference enables you to obtain the reference immediately;with it you will be able to manage and speed up all the Renta services, prepare the tax return using the Renta WEB service and file it online, regardless of the result of the return.
From 8 March 2023, the references obtained during the 2021 campaign will cease to have effect.If you want to continue operating with a reference to access Renta services, you will have to obtain a new reference with the amount of box 505 corresponding to the Renta 2021 tax return, which will be valid for Renta 2022 services.
You can obtain a valid reference when accessing any service at Headquarters that allows identification by reference, if you choose this access mode.Also from the link "Get your reference number" in the "Procedures" section of this help.
Now we will explain how to get a reference number using box 505 of the 2021 Income Tax return.Reference numbers obtained using the amount in box 505 of the 2020 financial year have ceased to be valid.
Remember that the reference is displayed directly on the screen or in the APP.
In the first window indicate DNI or NIE:
The following data to be communicated is automatically loaded:the date of validity of the DNI in the indicated format, dd-mm-yyyy, day, month and year separated by hyphens (if you do not enter a separation, the application will add the hyphens automatically).You can also use the calendar feature to select the date.If the DNI is permanent (01/01/9999), the date of issue of your document will be requested.You can display the help links “How to get the date of...?”which explains how to locate this information on the DNI.
In the case that you indicate a NIE, the information that will be requested will be the support number that appears on the document.You can display the help links "How to obtain the support number...", which explain how to find this information on the foreigner's card, residence permit or EU citizen's certificate from EU and how to enter it correctly in the form.For more information on the support number, you can also consult the help point "Enter a valid support" (How to enter the support number).
If it is a NIF without a validity date, type K, L, M, the information you must provide is the date of birth shown on your document.
When you click "Continue" the application will offer different alternatives depending on the DNI or NIE indicated, recognising whether or not it is registered in Cl@ve so that you can use this alternative identification system.In this case, click “Get Reference number using box 505” or “Get reference number”.If the function to obtain a reference number by check box is disabled, these options will not appear.
After clicking to get a reference number, the system detects whether or not an Income Tax return was filed in the previous tax year.
- If an Income Tax return was filed for the 2021 tax year, whether in an individual or joint tax return, the field is enabled for you to enter the information from box 505 on your 2021 Income Tax return.Remember that it corresponds to the "general net tax base," not to any other amount or the result of the tax return.Check this box on the copy of last year's tax return or draft, in the "Document income or refund".To enter the amount correctly, do not use any symbol in the full number and separate the decimals with a comma.
- If no Income Tax return was filed during the 2021 tax year, you will be asked for the last five digits of the IBAN for which you appeared as the holder in 2022.You will also be asked for this information if the amount of box 505 of the 2021 Income Tax return is 0.00.
Once you have entered all the requested details, click on “Get reference number”.
You will be shown the 6-character reference number for managing Income Tax.Write down or copy this reference number so that you can use it later.Nevertheless, it is possible to get up to 10 Income Tax reference numbers per day, and each one will be different, automatically revoking the previous one.
Please note that if you have obtained a reference from the APP, when you obtain a new one through the browser, it will revoke the previous one, so you will have to identify yourself again on the mobile device.Remember that only the last reference generated, either through the APP or from the website, will be valid.
Once you have the reference number, you can work with any of the Income Tax Campaign services available or those that permit identification in this way, such as the application of a Personal Income Tax certificate.
You will then be able to access your Income Tax file, where you will be able to check the procedures available to you at that time in the "Available Services" section.
If you would like more information on the management of the reference from the Tax Agency APP, you can consult the help "Services offered by the Tax Agency APP".
