Property Taxes in Puerto Rico – An Opportunity

September 24, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

In Puerto Rico, the valuation, invoicing and collection of property taxes is managed by the Center for the Collection of Municipal Taxes, which is normally referred to as “the CRIM” its acronym in Spanish.

Recently, the Government of Puerto Rico approved amnesty on past due taxes, which allows for the payment of this taxes without penalties and interests.  CRIM is actively pursuing the collection of these taxes.

Paying this tax with the benefits of the amnesty may proof to be a challenge on itself.  CRIM is known for poor recordkeeping and long lines.  The process to correct the registration of a property and the tax status is quite sloooooow and may require long lines and long hours.  It is important that you bear this in mind, for if you want to benefit from the amnesty you need to act sooner rather than later.

The amnesty is set to expire on November 28, 2010.

    Where do you go in Vieques to pay the CRIM? Is there a website where I can pay it online? I’m in the States for a period of time.

      Dear Charles:

      Thank you for your question.

      The CRIM is the agency which collects property taxes in Puerto Rico. The letters “CRIM” represent the acronym from the agency’s name in Spanish which is “Centro de Recaudacion de Impuestos Municipales.”

      In Vieques, you go the same building where the City Council meets, directly accross from City Hall, and ask to see Glenda.” She can assist you in paying your property taxes.

      There are a number of actions Glenda cannto perform and which would require you to go to the regional office in the town of Humacao. Glenda can describe to you the scope of her work.

      There is a site where you may pay your taxes. This is a new service, but unfortunately it is in only in Spanish. The link is: “http://www.etaxpr.com/crim/”.

      I hope this helps.

      Truly yours,

      Santiago F. Lampón
