Citizens asks to adapt the IRPF to inflation and alleviate the loss of acquisitive power of workers

Faced with the escalation of inflation, citizens registered on Friday at the Congress of the Deputies an Non-Law Proposition (PNL) to adapt the IRPF to inflation and cushion the loss of purchasing power that workers are suffering.

"The current thresholds of the general scale of the IRPF have not been modified since January 1, 2015. In this same period of time (January 2015 to December 2021, last data available on the INE website), the IPC has increased by 12.8%. Consequently, many taxpayers who, due to the nominal variation of their income, without having actually increased their economic capacity, are paying today by a tax rate higher than they should, "explains citizens in the document of Three pages signed by Edmundo Bal, which the world has had access.

The match of Inés arranged proposes that the bases go from 12,450 euros to 14,044 euros; of 20,200 euros at 22,786 euros; of 35,200 euros at 39,706 euros; of 60,000 euros to 67,680 euros; and from 300,000 to 338,400 euros, which would be a tax savings for taxpayers, since in case of their income, it has increased and have changed out, they will have suffered a loss given that the increase has disappeared by the effect of inflation.

They consider that it does not deflate the IRPF rates "goes against the constitutional mandate that the tax system must attend to the principle of economic capacity, by increasing the taxpayer's effective tax rate without this actually increased their income in real terms."

In addition, they believe that maintaining those thresholds "that do not correspond to the economic reality" is "further aggravating the loss of purchasing power" that workers suffer from inflation.

The objective of citizens is that Congress issues a PNL in which "the Government is urged to deflate the rate of the income tax of natural persons, in order to adjust the sections of the scale of said tax on the evolution of Inflation and the real economic capacity of taxpayers ".

The Spanish workers experienced in 2021 the greatest loss of purchasing power of at least the last 20 years, since their salaries grew on average much less than prices. This is added that, not deflacting the IRPF bases, the increase in salary they had (well below inflation) led them to pay more to the tax agency with which this profit was even lower in net terms.

Meanwhile, the Tax Agency earned a record collection of 220,000 million euros in 2021, especially sustained by the middle and low classes. Only by the IRPF, Hacienda entered almost 100,000 million, historical record.
