That's funny, I didn't get a letter.

There's always been a land tax, normally 50bht/year, and they only collect it when you sell.

They have been out in force over the Muang area for weeks with clipboards and writing stuff down. There is no local information as to how they will be calculating it. The only info. is such as can be found here; but don't know that it provides much of a gauge.

In the city area it would seem to affect rentals and commercial property the most. Next year has the possibility of being rather a bloodbath on an economy which has already ground to a halt.

There are going to be inherent problems in the interpretation of this, probably the biggest is the estimation of value. Then you have people who use or rent out a small piece of their residential land or building for commercial use.

The previous tax which this will be replacing (Pasee Rong Reun sp?) is already often paid by tenants rather than landlords and this goes for tenants of some of the very big landowners. How this pans out should be interesting. There are some very big landowners in downtown Chiang Mai. The cynic in me says they have had time to restructure and relocate the "owner" to the Cayman Islands!!

This could be another problem in that local areas choose to ignore the exemptions and collect from everybody. Really need for someone to go to the local office and ask for details.

Last year we questioned our tax and did the calculation in front of them. It turned out the bill we had been sent, was let's just say, not accurate.

Whilst asking about a license for homestay at the Tambon a friend was given the same info related to the tax thresholds, I,e, 50 mill for land and house.

 

They will be out in force from last Monday checking on land and house and apparently looking for illegal homestay as an aside. 

They did say that there was no license for homestay but once properties have been surveyed homestays will have a tax liability, if the property is rented to tenants for homestay the house owner is liable to the tax but may pass it on to the tenants to pay.

Was this in Hang Dong by any chance. Last week in Hang Dong there was an announcement about checking for "stale water" (ie. mosquitoes). Except there seemed to be a group of 10+ people going round snooping. Not in our place though as husband already padlocked gate.

My prediction for next year is not good, have seen this coming though.
