Author Posts July 10, 2012 at 8:17 am #56907 AnonymousParticipant I have just purchased a house (yipee!) and am trying to sort out the various paperwork. I of course have an NIE, but it is unclear if I need an NIF. I only own one property. I received an insurance policy with my passport number written as the NIF. The only taxes I shall have to pay are IBI and the non-resident tax… and it doesn’t seem that you need a NIF for these… Can anyone enlighten me?

(marital status, main abode, etc….) If you have had to fill this in, I assume it was to inform the relevant authorities of what will be your main property in Spain? so they know where to send notifications/sanctions/etc… Author Posts The forum ‘Property Questions & Answers’ is closed to new topics and replies.
