It also proposes a battery of NLP's with support measures for taxpayers, workers, the self-employed, pensioners and companies
The Popular Parliamentary Group today urged the Government to extend the period for filing the declarations for the Personal Income Tax (IRPF), corresponding to the 2019 financial year, by virtue of a Proposition not of Law registered this Thursday in the Congress.
With this initiative – signed by the GPP spokesperson, Cayetana Álvarez de Toledo; and by the GPP deputy spokesman Mario Garcés-, the Popular Group proposes that the extension of the filing period "be for a time equivalent, at least, to the duration of the state of alarm, thus allowing taxpayers to actually have the necessary time to gather all the necessary documentation and be able to receive the appropriate advice for the correct presentation of their tax returns ”.
The proposal, which recalls that the vast majority of taxpayers require help in filing their return – either through consultancies or through AEAT's customer service – also calls for "adjusting, accordingly, the deadlines established for the deferred payment of the declarations that result to enter ”.
More Proposals not of Law
Among the new initiatives registered today by the GPP there is a wide range of Propositions not of Law in the economic field of support to taxpayers, workers, self-employed and companies to, among other things, "expand the means of consultation, with telephone lines and telematic means additional, in each provincial Delegation of Work, in order to solve and facilitate all the doubts and procedures that arise in the management of the ERTE, as well as to establish telematic systems of notification regarding those affected by the ERTE ”.
It is also proposed "regulate the deferral of the obligation to file quarterly tax returns, accumulating them to the following quarter and allowing a deferment without interest."
Another non-law initiative calls for facilitating the management and application procedures for pensions for those beneficiaries with difficulties in accessing the electronic means to avoid interruption of income collection in households that depended on the deceased person's pension.
Through other Proposals not of Law, the GPP proposes to regulate the situation of the independent professionals assigned to mutual alternatives to the RETA; give preferential attention on lines 900 enabled to possible people affected by COVID-19 to those over 60 years of age, to social centers that provide residence service and to residents of depopulated areas; support measures for people engaged in street vending; measures to encourage the consumption of fish and also measures to prevent and protect RTVE workers against the coronavirus.
Among the broad battery of 146 new written questions, the GPP is interested in whether "the Ministry of the Interior plans to take the necessary measures so that the National Police and Civil Guard agents infected or deceased by the coronavirus during the exercise of their functions are considered victims in an act of service and if you plan to include any other group of professionals who are fighting. ”
In another series of questions, the GPP asks the Government about the preventive measures in the CETI, in case "it considers compatible the permanent demonization of private health and the public-private collaboration in Health that they have been carrying out in their political discourse with the fact that ministers and senior officials of the Executive themselves go to private healthcare to be assisted in their illness, as well as the reasons why the Government sets the date of the start of the coronavirus crisis in our country the following day of 8-M since the first infections began to occur in late January and the first deaths in mid-February. "
Finally, the GPP also asks about the manipulation in RTVE in relation to the information about the coronavirus and, specifically, about the cuts and interruptions of interventions made by the PP president, Pablo Casado, about this crisis.
Request for data, reports and documents
In this area, the Popular Group requests five requests for data from the Government, such as the corresponding reports on the confirmed cases of the National Center for Epidemiology that, surprisingly, do not appear on the website of the Ministry of Health; as well as the original Protocol of action in the face of the appearance of possible suspicious cases in Spain (updated to February 27, 2020), prepared by the CCAES and the Presentation of Alerts, Preparedness and Response Plans to which the periodic reports on the confirmed cases in Spain published on the Health website and, surprisingly, on dates 2, 3, 5, 9, 11 and 13 March 2020 lead to a link in which the aforementioned protocol appears updated to a date much later than the preparation of the reports, specifically on March 15, 2020.
Finally, the GPP has also registered the request to appear in the corresponding Commission of the Congress of the third vice-president of the Government, Minister of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation, Nadia Calviño, to report “on the economic impact of the pandemic caused and the approval of Royal Decree 463/2020, of March 14, on the establishment of the Alarm State ”.
