On 30 July 2015 I received notification that the catastral value of my house had increased because of a revaluation. The increase was 535%, resulting in a similar increase in IBI payable unless the rate of charge was to be decreased. No, of course it wasn't.

Today I received a notice that the increased IBI was being back-dated to 2012!

So for no apparent reason the village will glean an increase across the last 4 years of its income from IBI. This is unconscionable! No notice was given of the back-dating at the time of the revaluation.

Ratepayers beware!

I suppose you have spoken directly to the town hall to confirm the figures etc ?

 

PS and in the year when us crown pensoners will probably be paying a lot more in income tax too  !!!

The derisory amount of IBI paid by those in surrounding villages is one of the reasons that Mazarron council doesn't have enough money!

everyone uses roads , beach, has access to emergency services etc, but some are not paying their fair share.

It is ridiculous that someone can live in a large house on a huge plot of land, have all the facilities in the village and yet pay a minuscule amount of IBI, while on Camposol, it is 10 times higher.

the tax on every property should start at a baseline eg  200 euros to cover essential services, then additions can be made for size of house, land, extra facilities and so on

while those who can easily afford to pay a fair amount are smugly paying peanuts, then Camposol will never get the amount spent on it that it needs

i imagine many on Camposol thoroughly resent the fact that a bank manager is paying 10 times less than they are.

reasons given for this have been, some in villages are not on mains water, don't have street lights

well , in some villages they have everything you need including a decent bus service, something Camposol lacks.

IBI needs revamping in the Mazarron area,  and everyone should be paying a fair whack.

Apparently in  Mazarron, some have lived there for years and pay nothing!
