Land & Buildings Tax 2020


Recommended Posts

Just want to be sure that I understand everything correctly. LINE does not work anymore - I tried 0839749584. Or is there a different ID in the meantime? 

 

Even if my condo is my residence I will have to pay taxes if I have no yellow book. Is this correct? I have only 1 condo.

FYI a farang owned condo is only tax exempt if the farang owner has a Yellow tabien bahn in his or her name, this is because the blue tabien bahn has no name in it in the case of a farang owner.

Why would you pay a lawyer 1500 baht per condo when tax cost for your 2 condo would be only 136 baht after discount applied?   Even if you missed the discount date total tax would still only

Yes, city hall was a zoo but the accountant battled through it and got the tax paid.  Oddly, 198 baht total in tax, which at least was expressed to me as 99 baht per unit.  Obviously, I would anticipa

The Line no longer works, they were probably getting too many people adding, they don't appear to be well organised. Call one of these numbers instead 038 253151 - 2, Not worth wasting your life at City Hall. When I called the yellow book wasn't mentioned, I told them what was in my Blue book because they couldn't find the condo. No charge this year, maybe next year, no explanation Thai style, call back they said next April, no chance me doing that, they need to get their act together

Yes, the yellow book is the proove that you life in that condo and therefore not need to pay.

You only can be named in 1 yellow/blue book.

For me it worked, when I gone to the office to correct some mistakes. If your office is not too far away I would suggest you go there. And not every office is the same.. some even have very friendly and helpfull personal there.

About they are not organnised... that's another story.. no comment

I don't understand why perhaps thousands of people have to go there. It costs them money and time to get there and to sit there around and wait. On top of it we have Corona and gatherings should be avoided. Why can't they send out the bill by mail... I have no mood to go there too. In addition I might need the yellow book so that I don't have to pay taxes (perhaps - who knows...) . I checked the requirements to get one as foreigner. Really not simple to get it. Forget it - far too much effort.

That's correct but it's not an ID it is the telephone number. Try it see if it works.

I tried both and it doesn't work. I even added it to my phone contacts so that it gets added automatically.

I don't think that's correct, I phoned them, gave details of my blue book said my only residence and they said no charge

Then you were lucky. But normal case is that you have to show your yellow book (as foreigner) to be tax excempt.

Ya, i think you were indeed lucky.  I own condos in 4 different provinces for my own use & so have utility bills in my own name at each.  What would prevent me from telling each ampur tax collector that each of them was my primary residence in Thailand? A yellow book would.  My bet is that if the ampur tax collectors haven't already seen that wrinkle, they will at some point in future.

The same tax ID or passport number?

Update Pattaya City Hall - if you don't have a Yellow Book you need to pay taxes as foreigner. There is no other way. I attached what you need for a Yellow Book. It looks Thai but there is English too. For my taste it is too much what you need.

Strange, I didn't have to pay and I'm definitely a foreigner and no yellow book, makes sense as usual

I asked at 2 counters and both told me that without Yellow Book you have to pay and so I paid. Then I went to the 2nd floor and asked how to get a Yellow Book. The lady there explained it to me and gave me this piece of paper that I put here as photo. 

 

By the way - I arrived there at 4:10 and I was the only one everywhere. They all were very friendly and didn't complain that I came so late.
