Dear Sir,

On owning property in Spain you will be held liable to pay a series of property-related taxes such as:

1. IBI tax (aking to UK's Council Tax)
2. Garbage collection
3. Income tax on property (fictional notion)

Besides the above, if you spend more than 183 days a year in Spain you will become a fiscal resident being taxed on your worlwide income.

We have a specific sub-forum dealing with tax-related queries: Taxes (http://www.marbella-lawyers.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=11)

Yours faithfully,
