    BITTER RESIDENTS have been left ‘appalled’ at their soaring IBI bills as the tax on homes has doubled in the last five years. They fear expats and second home owners are being deliberately targeted for living in villas outside the main urban centres.

    They are deliberately targeted, irrespective of where they live.

    Just curious, is this your opinion, or can you substantiate this claim?

    FWIW, I think that expat urbs are getting more than their fair share of tax increases, but it’s it would be good to be able to demonstrate this with some objective data.

    It is my obeservation, first hand exprience and leant from others. After knowing Spain for well over twenty five years or more.

    You dont always need a proof to establish existence or not. In Estepona a couple of years ago the IBI was increased substancially. There were demonstrations. The Council almost revert the IBI for the residents to previous level & increased the non residents by 120% +/_

    Do you need proof for properties that were targeted at non residents. Property rental, Inheritence, Capital gains taxes etc.

    Its such an obvious tax raising method that I’d say the authorities would be stupid not to.

    Yes, it is blatantly obvious and like everything in Spain on your face. Non residents do not utilise fraction of the facilities that a normal resident does.

    It is blatantly obvious and as such it should be for the residents and residents equally & fairly.

    The miss use of tax & non equaitable targeting is what gives rise to tax avoidance.
