Tax receipts from Local Lodging (“AL”) grew from €69,000,000 to €123,000,000 between 2015 and 2017, as revealed by the Secretary of State for Tourism, Ana Mendes Godinho. “AL” license registrations also increased almost twofold from 28,000 to over 50,000 over the same period.
The Municipal Property Transfer Tax (“IMT”) which was scheduled for extinction in 2017 by the previous government will be maintained, according to the 2016 State Budget Proposal. The tax is currently the second largest source of revenue for local municipalities.
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.
