 does anyone know if you have to pay the car tax for the year even if you have sold the car? I sold mine in February and the car tax factura came in this month(april) should I pay it?

The person liable for the payment of road tax is the registered owner of the vehicle on 1st January each year.
Sorry.

Yup, bad luck. It's why there's always some bargains to be had in December, there's a rush to sell to avoid the next year's tax.

Ironically, the concesionario I bought my new one from, rushed to get the sale through and I collected the car and the temporary "Permiso de Circulacion" on December 28th. The official document came through on January 16th. I went to pay the tax but was told that only the official Permiso counts, so the concesionario is responsible for the tax. Even though the sales document clearly shows I owned it (and was driving it) on Jan 1st! So my guess is that nobody will pay, but if anyone gets chased by the authorities it is the concesionario who is responsible, not me. I even offered to pay, but my Town Hall refused to let me!

What ?   To avoid around 45 euros !!!!

 

When a vehicle is sold, part of the exchange of ownership I believe includes paying the circulation tax for that year.

I suppose it depends on the car and the ayuntamiento. Even though I was buying a 3-month old car for over €8,000 the concesionario was desperate to get the paperwork done before the end of the year! Funny that they still end up responsible :-)
