Apart from the increase in Tax on Local Lodging (from net 3,75% to net 8.75%) the State is planning indirect taxes and changes for 2017.
An added assessment, dubbed “Additional Municipal Property Tax (AIMI), will cover the entire ratable value (VPT) with an exemption on the first €600,000. For properties above this evaluation, the rate of 0.3% will apply. Property Owners with outstanding taxes will forfeit this exemption and will have to pay the new levy whatever the VPT.
On the other hand, owners of buildings with ratable values over one million euros should pay less overall tax in 2017 than last year, even with the proposed increase in Municipal Property Tax (IMI), due to the elimination of the 1% Stamp Duty on this type of luxury real estate.
The IMT will not be abolished in 2016. The gradual wind down is now scheduled to begin in 2017. For City Halls around Portugal, this means that they can continue to count this revenue of approximately €180 million in 2016.
