The amount paid annually by homeowners, locals and land for real estate tax (IBI) will rise in 2019 in about 728 municipalities, while it will decrease by about 449 locations.
This variation derives from the update of the cadastre for 1,179 municipalities, approved yesterday by the Council of Ministers and published today by the Official State Gazette (BOE) together with the tables of the update coefficients on which the valuation of the assets will be adjusted. .
This update does not imply that the type of tax varies -which is municipal in nature and fixed by each municipality-, but does the valuation of the property, which is the tax base on which it is applied.
The update had been requested by the city councils and in some cases involves the revision of valuations that had not been modified since the eighties.
Precisely the time elapsed since the last update is the one that indicates which municipalities have to revalue upwards and which downwards the real estate and in what amount.
Of the 728 municipalities, those who last reviewed the cadastre before 2004 will see an increase in the valuation of the dwellings, with a coefficient varying between 1.05 for those between 1984 and 1989 and 1.03 for the that they did between 1990 and 2000.
The coefficient will be 1.02 for those municipalities that last revised the cadastre between 2001 and 2003.
That is to say, that a property valued in 1985 in 100,000 euros will now be recorded in the cadastre 105,000 and this will be the amount on which the type of the IBI is applied.
Among the municipalities that review upwards their properties include towns Cuenca, Barcelona, Salamanca, Zaragoza, Valladolid, Girona, Guadalajara, Lugo, La Rioja, Avila, Zamora, Valencia, Toledo, Tarragona, Soria, Segovia, Palencia, Ourense, Huesca , Jaén or Madrid. Cádiz is affected in its provincial capital.
By contrast, the nearly 449 municipalities that last updated the cadastre between 2005 and 2013, in the middle of the real estate bubble, will now see the value of real estate reduced.
In this case, the coefficient oscillates between 0.97 – for the municipalities reviewed between 2005 and 2011 – and 0.93 for those of 2012 and 2013.
For example, a property registered in 100,000 euros in 2013 will now be valued at 93,000 euros.
The downward revisions affect municipalities of Guadalajara, Palencia, Soria, Cantabria, Almeria, Zamora, La Palmas or Burgos and large localities in Madrid, and also cities such as Aviles, Zaragoza and Almeria.
