Questions and Answers on Municipal Capital Gains

The Municipal Capital Gains Tax is a local tax levied on the increase in value of urban land during the time it has been owned by the owner. It is liquidated when a property changes ownership, whether by purchase, sale, inheritance or donation.

There are two methods to calculate the Plusvalia Municipal in Puerto del Rosario:

To calculate the Plusvalia Municipal, you need:

  • The acquisition value and the sale value of the property.
  • The cadastral value of the land, which you can find in the last IBI receipt.
