The properties that are covered by the CONFOTUR Law are exempt from fiscal commitments that you would have to pay in other properties, such as:

  • Transfer Tax on real estate rights (3% of the value of the property).

  • Real Estate Property Tax (IPI). It is equivalent to 1% of the annual tax of the surplus of +/- RD $8,150,000. That is, if you have several properties, they are added together and only what adds up to that value will be exempt.
