MUNICIPAL ADDED VALUE TAX (PLUS VALÍA)This can be as little as a few hundred Euros or as much as many thousands of Euros on a property with a lot of land that has not changed hands in many years. It is a tax by the town hall based upon the increase in the index value of a property between the year of purchase to the year of sale. This tax corresponds, by its nature, to the vendor who is responsible for its payment, unless otherwise negotiated.
