Tax hikes for residents in Benalmadena following unanimous PSOE vote

Benalmadena e

benalmadenaBENALMADENA 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.

  1. My Spanish lawyer told me to sell up and get off the coast years ago, and to buy property inland on urbanized land which I’ve done. I cut my 8K per year tax bill down to 800. Apart from the southerner scuddies, it’s just fine. But they do seem to cluster inland for some reason.

  2. This is a Socialist Party so perhaps no surprise although, PSOE is not really a true Socialist Party. What I do not understand however is a blind sided approach to such things that I have often seen in Spain from local shops up namely the seeming inability to look at financial gain in anything but the immediate to short term. Very odd. Yes that’s right fleece the “apparently” wealthy ex pats and then see everyone lose out. Madness!!
