BENALMADENA residents are facing tax hikes this year.
The town hall is set to increase its property and real estate tax (IBI) by 5% on properties worth less than €60,000, and by up to 25% on properties which worth more than €450,000.
The cost of rubbish collection will also rise by 5%, and the town hall also plans to increase revenue from traffic fines by 58%.
The motion was voted through unanimously by the socialist-led council, but the local Partido Popular group has opposed the tax hikes.
