If you received your maternity benefit as of 2014, you can request that your personal income tax be returned to you. The Supreme Court has determined that the public maternity benefits from Social Security, received by working women during the 16-week leave after the birth of a child, are exempt from personal income tax, contrary to the criteria that the Agency has up to now maintained Tax. This ruling can lead to thousands of mothers and fathers requesting a refund of their maternity benefits.
WHO CAN REQUEST A RETURN?
Taxpayers who included the maternity benefit in their personal income tax returns for financial years 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 can request a refund of the maternity benefit, since previous years have prescribed after more than four years have passed. Despite the fact that the IRPF rule speaks of maternity benefit, not only mothers may make such a claim, but also fathers who enjoyed the period assigned by the mother.
HOW MUCH CAN I GET TO RETURN?
It depends on each case. The amount to be returned can vary considerably depending on the amount of the benefit received and the marginal rate applied to the rest of the taxpayer's income. To find out the amount of the maternity benefit, consult the tax data for the years 2014.2015,2016, 2017, XNUMX and XNUMX.
