Modification of a filed 2020 Income Tax return
If after submitting the 2020 Income Tax return you consider that the return contains errors or omissions in the declared data, you can make a modification to your self-assessment by accessing the Income Tax file again.
This request is made to initiate a rectification procedure for a 2020 self-assessment, due to the resulting amount to be returned greater than that requested or a lower amount to be deposited. This option will also be used if you need to report information that does not affect the result of the declaration.
On the other hand, if errors or omissions in declarations already submitted have led to the realization of an income lower than that which would have legally corresponded or the realization of a return greater than the appropriate one, they must be regularized by submitting a complementary declaration through Renta WEB. to the one originally presented.
You can access the option "Modification of a declaration already submitted" from the “Previous years” section within the Income Tax procedures.
Access requires identification with a digital signature (certificate or DNI electronic), Cl@ve or with the Income reference of the current campaign.
In the "Processing Status" section you will see the status of the previous declaration. Next, among the "Available Services" you will have the option "Modify declaration" .
By clicking on it, it will give you the option to continue with the last saved work session, modify the declaration presented or generate a new declaration. Next, click on "Modify filed return".
If you have made several presentations, in the next window you will have to click on the self-assessment that you want to rectify.
You will be directly accessed to the declaration page where you must indicate the type of modification you are going to make, whether it is a rectification of the self-assessment or a complementary declaration.
The rectification of the self-assessment may be carried out:
- As long as the Tax Agency has not made the related final or provisional payment.
- It is necessary that the four-year period has not elapsed from the day following the end of the filing period, or from the day following the filing of the declaration if it was filed outside of said deadline.
You can also file the rectification from external filings or using a file.
Check box 127 and, in the new window, the option "If you wish to start a rectification procedure...". The details of the previous self-assessment will be displayed: the result to be entered from previous self-assessments or administrative settlements corresponding to the 2020 financial year (box 670) or the result to be returned (box 695) as well as the "Self-assessment receipt number" of the self-assessment whose rectification is requested. Indicate the account number ( IBAN ) to which you want the refund to be made. You will also have on that screen the "copy IBAN" icon that allows you to leave it on the clipboard and paste it at any other time in the session.
When you include this data, a notice will appear informing you that if the declaration is to be submitted in joint mode, the introduction of this data in the declaration must also be done from this mode.
In the case of a complementary declaration , check box 107 or the alternative to indicate the cause that motivates the presentation of the complementary declaration.
After checking the corresponding box, it is advisable to work on the declaration presented, since the new one will contain, in addition to the data reflected in the original self-assessment, those of new inclusion or modification. To continue completing the declaration, you can navigate through the different sections using the available arrows or by accessing "Sections".
After correcting the errors or omissions of the self-assessment, remember that you can verify the changes made from "Summary of declarations" and also check what the result of the current declaration would be.
Use the "Validate" button to check that the declaration is completed correctly. If no error is detected, you can submit the amended return by clicking the "Submit return" button.
By accessing your file again you will be able to view the declaration presented in the first instance and the subsequent rectification.
