The District Secretary of the Treasury reminded the owners of residential and non-residential properties that there is an option to pay the Property Tax by installments. So, Colombians who choose the Voluntary Alternative Payment System for Quotas (SPAC)you have until Friday, July 8 to register and submit your initial statement at the Virtual Office.
The District offers this possibility to taxpayers interested in easing their flow of resources, through deferred payment in four equal installments and without interest. After this measure worked satisfactorily, this year it maintains its traditional modality for residential and non-residential properties. In response to the health crisis, a new category was created for economic sectors affected by the COVID emergency, such as hotels, restaurants and bars, among others. These owners will also be eligible no later than July 8 to start paying next year.
It is important to clarify that, at the time of making the initial Declaration in the Virtual Office, the taxpayer must choose between the normal SPAC and the COVID SPAC, which guarantees access to the benefit over the total tax. The first modality begins to pay from Friday, July 22, while the second modality begins on Friday, February 17. The following are the maturities scheduled for the 2022 term.
The following are the maturities scheduled for the 2022 term:
