After buying a new apartment you have to pay a property tax. According to the law, the obligation to pay property tax comes with the earliest of the following events: the transfer of ownership, the commencement of use, the issuance using permit or another event that makes it possible to use the property in another way.
The amount of tax is approved annually by local authorities based on average market value, location, type of real estate and other factors. The tax rate is also affected by the age of the building. If you live in the real estate, you have the right to reduce the tax rate by 50%.
For registration in the tax (at the location of the real estate), it is necessary to provide the following package of documents within 30 days after the occurrence of one of the above events:
completed form PPI-2
a copy of the personal card (original for confirmation)
copy of the contract of sale (original for confirmation)
a copy of the certificate of PIB (for non-residents)
a copy of white cardboard, to prove that you live in the specified housing
Payment of property tax can be paid once a year or quarterly. Untimely payment of the tax will be punished with penalties.
