This is how having two payers in the 2020-2021 Income affects you: everything you need to know

Having two payers is always associated by the taxpayer with greater procedures with the Treasury in the Income statement, but the truth is that if they are clear about the limits and implications of our employment situation, solving our appointment with the Tax Agency does not have to be a headache.

Accumulating two or more payers during the year has always been seen as one of the greatest difficulties in Income and the truth is that for 2020 it will be more common than in other years: the large number of workers in Erte due to the pandemic () and the arrival of the Minimum Vital Income (which is apart from what it entails) make this campaign a very different and particular one.

For all these cases, it is important to be very clear about when you are required to file the declaration. that those people with two payers or more must make the declaration if their income exceeds 14,000 euros per year and, from the second payer, they receive at least 1,500 euros.

Although, for obvious reasons, attention has focused in this campaign on IMV beneficiaries and those affected by an Erte, under these conditions there are also people who combine several jobs, who have found work after receiving a pension (they are considered income from work) or that they have changed jobs during the tax period, reasons why they exceed those 1,500 euros of the second payer (and following) and that in other campaigns they have always had to present the declaration.

Another mantra associated with people with two or more payers is the one that states that the decensorship always comes out to pay. The answer is that it doesn’t have to. In some cases, such as those affected by an Erte, it is very frequent, since the Public State Employment Service (SEPE) barely applies withholdings or even directly does not apply them, according to what is reported on its website. This also applies to other unemployment benefits paid to citizens and, therefore, affects people who got a job after several months unemployed.

In these cases, it is quite likely that the return will be paid, since the taxpayer accumulates several months of just withholdings that he later has to compensate in the presentation of the return. There is, however, a solution that may already come too late: it can be done so that the Treasury does not scare us with the declaration.

Other situations are somewhat more complex, such as those of people with two or more jobs or who have changed jobs. In these cases, the possibility that the declaration goes out to pay is given by the usual practice of companies to retain their workers as if they only had a single employment relationship. This gives rise to imbalances that can lead to the final declaration to be paid, although in these cases it is best to go to the human resources department to adjust the withholdings to avoid problems.

Be that as it may, and even if the declaration comes out to pay you, it is absolutely false that, with two payers or more, you pay more taxes than the rest of the workers. Nothing is further from reality: you simply pay what you have to pay. The only difference is that your contribution throughout the year, thanks to this situation, is different from that of other taxpayers and, due to these imbalances, you may be forced to pay what you have not paid in previous months .
