Royal Decree-Law 20/2021, of October 5, which adopts urgent support measures for the repair of damage caused by volcanic eruptions and for the economic and social reconstruction of the island of La Palma , contemplates a special deferral of tax debts that can be availed of by all those taxpayers who have their tax domicile on the island of La Palma (Santa Cruz de Tenerife) when said territory is classified, by Council Agreement of Ministers of September 28, as "Area seriously affected by a civil protection emergency" due to the damage caused by the volcanic eruption in the Montaña Rajada area.
Taxpayers who, pursuant to said Royal Decree-Law, wish to avail themselves of the deferral relaxation measures included therein, must proceed in accordance with the following instructions:
1.- Submit, using the usual procedures, the self-assessment which includes the amounts to be deposited that the taxpayer wants to defer, marking, as with any deferral, the “debt recognition” option. with a request for postponement.”
Once the self-assessment has been filed, you can process the deferral by clicking on the link to the deferral request that the application offers, following the steps indicated in section 2.3.
If you do not wish to request a deferral at that time, you can submit the request later through the AEAT's E-Office using the option detailed in Section 2.
We remember that this type of postponement is only admissible for declarations-settlements and self-assessments whose filing and payment deadline ends from October 6, 2021 to January 31, 2022 , both inclusive, and to which only taxpayers who have their tax domicile on the island of La Palma (Santa Cruz de Tenerife) can opt.
2.- Directly file the request for deferral.
