Bad news I'm afraid!!

I have recently received the receipt for the Direct Debit for my 2009 I.B.I.

In this receipt is the Valor Catastral value, on which your income tax is based.

My Valor catastral value for the 2009 Income Tax has increased by 130%

The Wealth Tax may be dead but it looks as if it has been resurrected in a different form.

Has anyone else been hit by this increase?

Seems outrageous. But when was it last revised? Probably years ago. Similar thing happened in Estepona recently, I think.

We've been in our current home 5 years, and our IBI has not increased one year to the next. Neither, for that matter, has my annual car tax. It's easy to think, Great! Back in the UK it would go up at least once a year! But be sure, they'll get you in the end.

Legal Questions? Speak to Maria Direct

Legal tip 69. Claims against IBI tax amount
16 April 2009 @ 13:41


If your IBI receipt (Local property tax) over-rises after a Cadastre review, there are two possible avenues of legal action:

 A) Before or against the body of cadastral revision.
I. Submitting a Request for review to the Cadastre management organ which corresponds territorially.

The document you will receive with the revision of the Cadastre value needs to mention the address of the office for the claim and the possibility of the claim itself.
II. Directly to the pertinent Court with judicial power on economic acts of the Administration. 
In both cases (I and II), the earlier deadline for filing an appeal is 30 working days (it includes working Saturdays and excludes Sundays and public holidays) from receipt of notification of cadastral revision. You need to receive that document by registered mail.
You are obliged to pay the IBI receipt you are challenging even if you are claiming against it. 

B)  Before the Local Council
The Local Council applies an index to the cadastral value; this determined the IBI tax amount. It is also possible to submit a claim against that index.
