The nerjeños will be relieved the fiscal pressure in their pockets next year, checking how the Property Tax (IBI) returns to the figures they paid two years ago. This was agreed by the City Council in its last ordinary session, held last Thursday, October 31. The PP minority government team added the support of the mayor of Cs, Mari Carmen López; UPNER, José García, and that of Vox, Miguel Armijo, to reduce the tax rate of the IBI to 0,461 for next year, a measure that included the abstention of the six mayor of the PSOE and the two of Adelante Nerja-Maro.
With this reduction the receipts that will be paid next year will be identical to those of 2017, after last year and in this year have been increased by the revision of the cadastral values. «This proposal was already presented by the Popular Party in the plenary session of November last year, but was rejected by the votes against the Socialist Party, United Left and EVA-Podemos, despite the fact that in the investiture pact they committed to freeze taxes, and even lower them for social emergency situations, ?they said from the PP municipal government in a statement.
In addition, the real estate tax of a rustic nature will be reduced in 2020 to 0.3, which is the legal minimum established in the General Tax Law. In the session it was also agreed to reduce the receipt of the Municipal Tax on Vehicles of Mechanical Traction, with the backing of PP, Adelante Nerja -Maro, Cs, UPNER and Vox, and the abstention of the six socialist councilors.
Specifically, with the motion passed in plenary last Thursday, a linear reduction of 10% of the quota in the next three years is approved, reducing it by 2.5% in the receipt of the next fiscal year. In addition, a 50% bonus will be applied for hybrid vehicles, and 75% for electric vehicles as of the next fiscal year.
