CURP card and municipal taxes

by rojo, Tuesday, April 11, 2017, 20:52 (14 days ago)

In a discussion with a group of expats, the issue of foreigners owning property in the affected zones and the annual taxes came up with contrasting opinions. If a foreigner property owner has the Curp card, do they qualify for a reduction on their annual property taxes?? I thought that the fiduciario had the name of the bank that holds the title, so therefore the foreigners name is either not on the tax notice or is secondary, and therefor not eligibile. Could someone with knowledge on the issue, please afford the correct info.

I know it's good for half price on water bills, and discounts on bus tickets (not local), but would love it if it helped on our property taxes. (As low as they are) However, have not heard that it is, and from my sources, that means it isn't, sigh.

Not the CURP, the Inapam.

Yes, our property taxes have a 50% reduction. Same with our neighbour and another foreign friend as well. So there are 3 that I personally can vouch for. At the caja where you make the payment for property tax which outlines the qualification for this deduction. For a few years a friend took our payment along with hers. It wasn't until 3 years ago when I started doing it myself that I saw this sign and asked questions, and received the discount.

For the uninitiated, would someone care to clairify what those "cards" actually are?

Thanks!

The INAPAM is a card you can apply for, if you are over 60 and live here. You used to need an FM2, maybe now you can get it with a temp res, but for sure you can with a perm res. It is basically a seniors' card which offers several discounts.

You apply at DIF. The office used to be on Morelos, towards La Noria, past Cinco de Mayo. I'm not sure if that office is still at that location. You need you immigration card (Perm res) plus 2 utility bills showing your address.

opps.....yes you do....I forgot about that part! You need specific ones for front view and left or right profile (I forget which), so best to check in with DIF first so you get the right ones. There are also some restrictions about jewellery, glasses, smiling, etc.

CURP is a personal ID number for residents and citizens (Clave Única de Registro de Población)

Inapam is a Senior Citizens discount card (Instituto Nacional para las Personas Adultas Mayores)

An RFC (Registro Federal de Contribuyentes) is a tax payer ID number.

When expats talk about visas they say RT referring to Residente Temporal, and RP is Residente Permanente. FM2 and FM3 are used but are outdated since 2012.
