Mexican property taxes you or your foreign clients must pay
IF YOU OR YOUR FOREIGN CLIENTS OWN RENTAL PROPERTY ANYWHERE IN MEXICO
THESE MEXICAN TAXES MUST BE PAID
- Mexico Income Taxes
- Mexico Value Added Taxes – IVA (16%)*
- Many nonresidents of Mexico have never paid any taxes on their rental income from properties they own in Mexico. This is against Mexican tax law. The Mexico tax code clearly states that these Mexican taxes must be paid on rental income from apartments, houses, and commercial property. Failure to do so can result (and has resulted ) in substantial penalties and legal problems with the Mexican tax authorities.
It is now easy to pay these taxes and avoid problems even if you or your foreign non-resident clients do not have a Mexican tax identification number (RFC). The Settlement Company® has developed a simple and easy procedure which will allow you to be tax compliant on rental income. You do not have to suffer the consequences of failing to pay.

The Good News: The IVA you pay in Mexico is deductible on your US tax return and the income taxes you pay in Mexico can offset your US taxes on the same income dollar for dollar. You will not be double taxes.
*IVA is paid by tenant but collected and declared by owner. Applies to furnished residential properties only.
