Tax deductions if you choose to support the Foundation
According to Spanish Law 49/2002 of 23 December on tax arrangements for non-profit entities and tax incentives for patronage, donors to the Traditional Building Cultures Foundation may, if they meet the relevant requirements, claim the following tax deductions in their next tax return(s):
Personal income tax (IRPF)
The first €250 donated carry a deduction of 80%, i.e. the taxpayer pays €50 and the remaining €200 paid to us is an indirect subsidy from the Finance Ministry.
For amounts of more than €250, the deduction is 80% for the first €250 and 40% for the remaining quantity (45% if donations of the same or larger amounts have been made to the same entity in the two immediately previous tax periods). For example, for donations of €500, for the first €250 the deduction is 80%, so the taxpayer recoups €200. For the remaining €250 the deduction is 40%, so the taxpayer recoups €100. So in total the taxpayer recovers €300, or €312,5 in the case of a recurring donation.
* The deduction has a limit provided for in section 1 of article 69 of Law 35/2006, of November 28, on Personal Income Tax and partial modification of the laws on Corporate and Income Taxes of non-residents and on Heritage. The rules on tax incentives in Navarra and the Basque Country may be different from those in the rest of Spain.

Corporations (corporate tax)
The amount donated carries a deduction of 40% (50% if donations of the same or larger amounts have been made to the same entity in the two immediately previous tax periods). For example, for donations of €500, the deduction will be 40%, so the taxpayer recoups €200, or €250 in the case of a recurring donation.
* This deduction is capped at 15% of the relevant taxable amount for the tax period. Amounts exceeding this limit may be applied in the tax periods ending within the ten immediately successive years.
