Important to note here since many, foreigners and nationals, hold title to their home in a legal entity (corporation) whose annual tax must be kept up.

The payment of these taxes can be made through banks authorized by the Ministerio de Hacienda (Ministry of Finance), either online or at the branch, by only indicating the taxpayer ID number.

For foreigners having a home in Costa Rica subject to the ‘uxury tax’ payment can be made from abroad using their special tax number (NITE) or immigration residency number (DIMEX). More information on the luxury homes tax and payment from abroad is available here.
