The Temporary Solidarity Tax on Large Fortunes came into force in Spain at the end of 2022. This tax, managed at the state level and complementary to the Wealth Tax, will try to harmonize the taxation of wealth in all the autonomous communities of common regime. This paper analyzes the taxation of wealth in Spain, as well as the reform proposals put forward so far. We estimate, using microsimulation techniques, the new state tax for the year 2022, with the aim of obtaining the main revenue effects that its implementation will have. Its impact will be very unequal between autonomous communities due to the existing differences in the autonomous community regulations of the Wealth Tax.
