Thread: Non-Resident Condo Property Taxes Increasing by 50% on January 1, 2019

  1. #11
    English language explanation of tax changes. Applies in the most part to both residents and non residents. Despite having to accept a big increase here myself, it's good to see Aruba making some things a bit better for it's poorest citizens whilst trying to make fiscally prudent decisions and attempting to pay off some of its very large deficit which has ballooned over the past few years.

    They will raise property tax from 0.4 to 0.6% for non-residents home and cindi owners.
    Also the 6% tax will be included in the invoices and receipts to avoid double taxation.
    and of course they will increase “sin” tax on alcohol and cigarettes.

    Yes, in the same article says that senior citizens will not pay taxes and property taxes will be reduced for local people, depends on the value of the property.

    At one point, I read that Aruba is in the top 10% of the highest taxes in the world.
