Getting back your maternity leave tax money as per the new law passed in October. Devolución del IRPF por maternidad.

Back in October the Supreme Court declared that it was illegal for the government to make parents (both mothers and fathers) pay taxes on their income while on maternity/paternity leave. Now the government has to pay back the tax money retained for those who file a claim.

Just today the official form has been published to make this claim:

If you had a baby born in 2014 or 2015 (2016 and 2017 claims will be processed after January 2019), fill out this form to get your tax money back!!

It looks like you have to present the form in person at Hacienda, but supposedly they’ve already run cross-data checks with Social Security so no other information has to be presented.
