Municipal tax rate varies from 0.4% to 1.1%, and it is set by the authorities of the municipality (Ayuntamiento). The cost of land currently several times lower than the market. For example, for the house at the price of 250,000 euros IBI may be about 300 - 450 euros. This tax is paid once a year, usually in July - August. The mayor's office received a letter with the details and terms of payment. It is important not to defer tax payment deadlines, or have to go for new details. Not for payment, can count a penalty.

In this situation, you need to pay an annual fee for non-residents, which is called Impuesto Sobre Renta de no Residentes, abbreviated - IRNR. The basis for the calculation of the cadastral value of the property, as well as the installed base tax of 2% or 1.1% of its value. 2% is applied in those municipalities where the cadastral value of the object have not been updated in the direction of increasing since 1994, and 1.1% is applied in municipalities where the cadastral value after 1994 has been increased. The tax rate is the same for all municipalities, and is equal to 24% of the tax base.

There were cases when after the sale, the seller disappeared with the money without paying tax. This amount is held by the buyer or his lawyer, because the buyer is liable for this tax. Tax on the increase in value of the property for non-residents from January 2013 is 21%. The amount at which the tax is charged, it is - the difference between the sale price and the purchase price, less any costs for improvements to housing, because if you make improvements and alterations, the store checks, perhaps in the future it is useful to you. If the increase in the cost of housing is less than 3%, you have to claim back the difference through his lawyer. If this difference is higher - the seller is obliged to pay the difference in the tax authorities.

    If you are a resident of Spain, no deduction is not performed. But you have to include the profits (increased value of the property) in its income tax return for the following year (income tax for individuals).
