Spain’s version of the automatic tax return

Robin Hogarth, of Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, Spain, sends along a report that the Spanish government has a version of the automatic tax return.

Each year you receive a form –called the “borrador” — that lists all the sources of income and interest payments that have been reported to the government and, if you agree that it covers all your transactions, you can sign off on it there and file your taxes automatically. I believe that this system has existed for some 3 or 4 years already!!
