QCOSTARICA – Paid your Marchamo in November? If you are among the thousands of vehicle owners paying their 2023 Marchamo early, that is before the measly reduction in property tax, expect a refund between December 19 and March next year.

The 2023 Marchamo is payable by December 31

The Ministerio de Hacienda (Ministry of Finance) on Tuesday confirmed the majority of 2023 Marchamos has, as of Monday, December 5, been automatically reduced between ¢500 and ¢3,500 colones, for the majority (83%) of all vehicles.

Until November 27, the Ministry of Finance said it had more than 500 claims for the calculation of the fiscal value of the vehicles, the value used to determine the annual property tax on vehicles, included in the overall cost of the Marchamo.

More information on how to process a refund will be published on the Q when it becomes available.
