The personal income tax withholding certificate is a a document showing, in the form of personal income tax withholdings, a summary of the money that the taxpayer has advanced to the tax authorities. These deductions are made by the company, deducting a certain percentage of the worker's salary from their paycheck, or from the invoices that self-employed workers issue to their clients.
Thus, each time the worker receives his or her salary, the company pays a part of the salary to the tax authorities as an advance on what will have to be paid for personal income tax (IRPF). These deductions are also included in the invoices issued by the self-employed. However, it may happen that more money has been advanced than the bill, in which case the Tax Agency will return the difference to the taxpayer. If there is not enough money advanced, the taxpayer will have to pay the corresponding amount to the tax authorities after having filed the tax return..
