For this reason, TaxDown wants to avoid these problems for Spaniards and help them file it with maximum savings and in a very short time. In fact, the average savings of Taxdown users is around 400 euros, reaching in some cases up to 1,000, applying the corresponding deductions.

“Taxdown helps anyone, without the need to have knowledge of taxes or taxation, to quickly and easily carry out a very cumbersome procedure that most citizens have to go through once a year: the income statement. To date, our company has achieved the national record for a private company in the number of tax returns filed. Last year, we managed more than 193 million euros in taxes for our 'taxers', saving them more than 17 million euros. In addition, this year, more than 250,000 taxpayers have already filed their income tax return with us," says Enrique García, CEO of TaxDown, who, together with Álvaro Falcones and Joaquín Fernández, were the creators of this Spanish platform for online tax advice more than of three years.

Thus, the platform improves the results of the initial Treasury draft by a high percentage.

This system allows users to file their return simply and quickly, 100% online and with the support and help of TaxDown's tax advisors, who are available to resolve any incident that may arise, accompanying taxpayers throughout the whole process.

What's new this year: freelancers and cryptocurrency investors

There are two novelties presented this year by the TaxDown application for its clients. In the first place, the company will allow all self-employed workers to file their income tax returns, thus facilitating tax procedures for the more than three million self-employed in our country.

And, on the other hand, TaxDown will facilitate this year the declaration of income to all investors who have bought or exchanged cryptocurrencies during the past year. And it is that more than four million Spaniards invest in cryptocurrencies: 41.4% think that they will not have to pay any type of tax for what they earn with their crypto assets, while 28.4% admit that they do not know. For this reason, it is convenient to be clear about how the operations that we have carried out in 2021 with cryptocurrencies or NFTs can affect us in the income statement, since more and more investors are choosing these financial assets.

It is a complex process in which the user will have to carry out a series of operations and take into account certain variables. For this reason,
TaxDown has written a guide
explaining step by step how to declare these digital currencies. In addition, the company makes it easier for us this year than ever, with a specific module to report investments in cryptos and foreign brokers automatically.

The income statement, in large numbers

According to data from TaxDown, 80% of taxpayers seek help when filing their income tax return as it is not a very intuitive process and, on some occasions, somewhat tedious with more than 1,000 boxes to check. In fact, around 900,000 returns are filed with errors each year, resulting in lost savings of more than 9,000 million euros.

And although the Renta WEB portal is the clear dominator when it comes to filing the return, more and more taxpayers opt for other options such as their own bank, tax advice or the help of friends and family.
