Seller Tip

     Capital Gains Taxes on Mexican Properties

''Mexico's tax code on property taxes changed dramatically in February 2010, and again this past few months (Nov. 2013 law taking effect on Jan. 1, 2014).

The changes nullified most internet advice given before February, and makes much current internet advice suspect.   This article addresses some of the current tax requirements and rules,  and it also addresses the tax differences between Visitante, Residente Temporal, and Residente Permanente INM Residency Card options.''  



Buyer Tip

   Safe ways to invest money in overseas property

''Invest only in those properties that you believe to be the most profitable ones. If you are planning to allow tourists to use your property, then decide on the kind of people you want to rent out to. They may be retired professionals or newly-weds, but you must get in touch with local brokers or agents to find out the preferred amenities of a particular group.''

Rental Tip

      4 signs that you should keep renting

''Buying a home is a big decision. You'll want to learn what you can about the local housing market, including the pricing trends, the school district and the property taxes. Another thing to consider is how well you know the home itself. Sure, that roof looks good, but an expert may tell you it needs to be replaced soon. That's not the kind of surprise you want after you've spent a lot on a down payment.'

''Recent changes in the law governing what non-Mexicans may or may not drive in Mexico are fairly clear. Yet essential communication on this important subject is not readily available in English. Furthermore, several important administrations including Immigration, Customs, Border Control, State and local tax offices, not to mention a bewildering number of police forces are involved, so very few have the broad picture covering each potentially hazardous step. "

Mexican Government Wants 33% of Energy from Renewable Sources by 2018 

''Approval of the legislation will make it easier for "both large companies with cutting-edge technology and those who want to put a solar panel on the roof of their house to do so, to acquire a solar heater or to lease a part of their land for wind generation," Coldwell said. Only 24 of the nearly 200 countries in the world use geothermal resources to generate electricity, with Mexico ranking fifth on the list, the energy secretary said."
