  • In the case of being obligated and making the form 720 without a requirement from the administration, the penalty will be 100 euros for each piece of information omitted with a minimum of 1500 euros. As a consequence, the Law establishes the obligation to impute this property as capital gain in the Income Tax of the last year not prescribed, as long as it cannot be demonstrated that this income comes from years in which the taxpayer was not a tax resident in Spain
