The Spanish Tax Authority
The Spanish authority responsible for tax collection is the “Agencia Estatal Tributaria” (AEAT-Hacienda). It is organised on a provincial basis. There is a main tax office in each province.
In many provinces there are also one or more sub-provincial offices.
In Spain, it is your responsibility to get a tax form, fill it in and calculate the amount of tax you owe to the state. It is then your responsibility to submit the form to the hacienda along with the appropriate tax payment.
