Obligation to file for Curacao property tax


By means of this short memo we would like to draw your attention to the obligation to declare property tax.


This is the case in the following situations:


(whereby we shorten somewhat for editorial reasons):


1 If you acquire )the use of) an immovable property, you must submit a tax return to the tax inspector within two months of the acquisition;


2 If a change occurs to the immovable property that causes the value to change by more than 5 percent with a minimum of ANG 25,000;


3 The property tax works with periods of five years each.


Property tax has been introduced as of the year 2014.

The first five-year period therefore ran from 2014 to 2018.

The next period started on January 1, 2019.

Even if you have filed a property tax return after the introduction of the obligation to declare, a tax return must be submitted if you have not received a property tax assessment for 2019.

This tax return must be submitted before 28 February 2021.

If you do not file a tax return, the inspector can impose a fine of 100 percent of the amount of the assessment, so it is worth paying attention to this.


Our offices will of course be happy to assist you.
