By 6:00 pm, the law was officially published in La Gaceta, giving the law effect for the November 1 deadline to be applied to the collection of the annual circulation permit starting on Monday.

“This law arrived yesterday (Thursday) afternoon and I have signed it immediately to allow time for it to take effect before the collection of the 2021 Machao begins and thus be able to give effective relief to the pockets of hundreds of thousands of people,” Alvarado said.

For vehicles valued at less that ¢7 million colones, the reduction is 50%. Vehicles with a tax value between ¢7 million and ¢10 million will have a 25% reduction on that tax, while vehicles valued between ¢10 million to ¢15 million, the reduction is15%.

As for motorcycle owners, those with a value of less than ¢1 million will be exempt from Value Added Tax (VAT).

Ships, boats and aircraft must pay 100% of the Marchamo

The property tax on vehicles constitutes about 63% of the total payment each year.

This tax reductionwill open a gap of at least ¢50 billion colones in revenue of the Government expects to cover its end-of-year expenses, such as the Aguinaldo (Christmas Bonus) for civil servants.
