Property Taxes in Mexico

In December, the tax office allows you to pay to taxes for the following year early and at up to a 25% discount.  Also, if you are going to pay your taxes, it is worth the trip into the municipial building in Cancun, rather than paying them in Puerto Morelos.  As of now, the two do not share a central database for recording payments.  So, the Puerto Morelos office has you recorded as paid and the Cancun office doesn't.  Of course, you can always present your receipts and get the difference corrected in Cancun's main office -- but it's easier to just do it in Cancun and avoid the potential of having to pay twice in case you should loose the receipt.

Reminder:  Have you paid your 2010 predial tax yet?
