  • Once the corresponding self-assessment has been filed.
  • Provided that the Tax Administration has not made a final settlement or provisional settlement for the same reason.
  • In addition, the term of four years referred to in Article 66 of the LGT must not have elapsed.

This term of four years will begin to be counted:

  1. If the tax return was filed within the regulatory period for filing the tax returns, from the day following its completion.
