Car tax reduction

Postby Wicksey » Sat May 22, 2021 10:21 am

Has anyone else noticed their car tax is less this year? In Torrox they have never altered until this year. Previously 43€, it's now 39€ (for our 1.4 and 1.2L cars)

Both mine and my wife's cars, registered in Velez Malaga, are the same cost as last, and previous, years. So no change here.

I wonder if they have changed the method of calculating the fee? We've now got petrol cars so perhaps they are being charged less, or for newer cars?

Mine have both gone up, not unexpected though, a not max efficiency 2 litre diesel and a downright inefficient 2 litre petrol.
Just an unexpected hit in an already bad financial month.

Hi,
vehículo mixto adaptable...........i.e Kangoo type.......you can add another 100€ to your above quoted car prices up in Jaén.

They've obviously adjusted the rates then according to emissions and age perhaps? First changes in all the years we've been paying car tax here.

My Focus diesel is taxed at €69 down here in Casares. I bought it from a person living in Mijas Costa and they were paying €119

Some of the town halls lower the car tax on purpose to attract business. Example in Malaga city all the hire cars are registered in two areas where the tax per car for a normal 1.2 litre is about EUR 8.50 compared to about 65 EUR if if was registered in the centre of Malaga.

In Madrid Capital I pay 179 but if I moved to near Barajas Airport it would be 22.40.

I was aware that it's very much a local tax and seems to vary greatly between municipalities. It's just the first time in 20 years they've actually altered it. For us, in a downward direction, albeit only by 4 euros.
