What Vince has correctly posted is true.
However, the political party PP approved this legal measure a few years ago but it hasn’t been put into effect because there are 13 different definitions for “empty dwellings” and obviously depending on which definition is chosen some people will be taxed and some won’t.
I believe that the ruling political party will decide on this after the municipal elections are over, where foreigners which are registered can vote, so as not to lose votes. So it hasn’t been officially approved yet -the exact definition of empty dwelling- and until then this measure is wet paper.
We’ll have to wait and see what happens. Another governmental measure to foster rents in Spain.
