This article is part of our guide Taxes in Spain for non-residents and foreigners.
This is the main local property tax affecting property owners in Spain.
The amount of tax is calculated by reference to the ‘valor catastral’ (official property value) registered for all properties in Spain.
The percentage of this cadastral value that is levied as tax varies from area to area.
The official values were very low until recently. They are now rising rapidly, in line with a Spanish government policy to bring official values closer to the real value of the property.
Some municipalities levy additional taxes depending on the services they provide to residents. These include rubbish collection, street and beach cleaning, etc.
Municipalities are also entitled to charge a fee for the use of a vehicle in their area.
The amounts of these fees and charges are usually not high.
