Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - It's that time of the year again. Time to pay your Mexico property taxes. The good news is that Puerto Vallarta property tax payments are easy to make, thanks to an online system. Furthermore, if you pay your property taxes before the last day of February you'll receive a 15% discount. Payments made during the month of March are only discounted by 5 percent.
Before you log onto the ONLINE TAX PAYMENT CENTER, be sure to have your Predial account number in hand. This is usually a 4 digit number (could be more) found on the top right hand side of your property tax bill in the box that says "Cuenta."
When you visit the website, type in your property tax id number where it says 'Cuenta' and click 'Buscar.' The amount you owe will show up and payment can be made with your Visa or Master Card. Make sure to keep the payment receipt in your records as you may be asked for it at some point. Any unpaid balances will become delinquent and subject to interest and penalties.
Another reminder for foreign owners of property in Mexico, or anyone holding Mexican property in a trust, or "Fideicomiso," is to make sure you mark down your Purchase Date or the Date on the top of your trust deed, or "Escritura." This is your anniversary date and your annual trust fee is due on that date each year. Make sure your trust bank has your current email address and contact information so that those notices arrive in a timely manner. This will help you avoid hefty late fees.Should you have any questions on this or any other matter, feel free to contact the Timothy Real Estate Group at any time.
