For taxpayers to whom the transitional regime of the deduction for investment in habitual residence that regulates the eighteenth transitional provision of the Personal Income Tax Law is applicable, the percentages in the autonomous section for residents in the Autonomous Community of Catalonia are those established by article 1.2 of Law 31/2002, of December 30, on fiscal and administrative measures, in the wording in force on December 31, 2012:

  • 7.5 per 100 , in general.

  • 15 percent , if it involves works to adapt the habitual residence of people with disabilities.

Likewise, the sixth transitional provision of Law 7/2011, of July 27, on Fiscal and Financial Measures, will be applicable to these taxpayers, which maintains for taxpayers who acquired their habitual residence before July 30, 2011 or paid amounts for the construction of the habitual residence before said date (does not include the rehabilitation or expansion of the habitual residence) the application of an increased percentage of 9 per 100 when they are in any of the following situations:
