Capital Gains Tax ?

I used to think that if I’d lived in Spain as a resident for 3 years and was over 65 then I would not have to pay CGTax when selling my main residence. But I’m told that this is no longer the case. Can anyone clarify this for me please.
Thanks, Reg.

Lost – Push Chair
A beige/dark grey McLaren push chair was accidentally left in the
street in Canillas de Albaida on Thursday 21 July, roughly outside the
municipal swimming pool on the road leading down to Archez.
If anyone has found it, or knows of its whereabouts, could you please
email me at the address below.
And if anyone knows what arrangements may exist in Canillas for
dealing with lost property I should be very grateful if you could
share that information with me.
Many thanks

Send an email to janekirkspain @ gmail (dot) com

Photos will only be published once.

Photos must be in JPG or JPEG Format

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
