Comments on the painting:

Rule 2 and its limits are independent of those contained in rule 1, acting in any case as a corrective criterion for rule 1 for small amounts of income. Consequently, if a taxpayer is not required to declare due to the nature and amount of the income obtained in accordance with the limits and conditions of rule 1, the application of rule 2 will not apply.

When, from the application of the limits and conditions of rule 1, the taxpayer is obliged to submit a declaration, rule 2 and its limits must be used to verify whether the exclusion of the obligation to declare applies when dealing with small amounts of income. .

Please note that in rule 1, property losses are not listed among the cases exempt from the obligation to declare.

Likewise, keep in mind that rule 2 does not list the imputation of income.
