Non Spanish Residents – Property Tax   If you are not a Spanish resident but own a property in Spain, you will need to fill out a tax form each year to declare your “imputed” income from your property (even though you do not rent it out). This should not be confused with your IBI which is a council tax and your Basura tax to cover rubbish collections.   You will not necessarily be reminded that you owe Non-Residents’ tax and it is your responsibility to pay it before 31st December each year. Any unpaid tax has to be settled when you sell the property but you may well also be fined and/or be charged late-payment interest. To pay the tax, you need to fill out Modelo 210 which can be downloaded from the Tax Agency’s website (www.agenciatributaria.es).  Many people use a tax adviser or gestor to fill in the form but they charge in the region of 100 euros which is often a lot more than the tax itself.  We charge 30 euros if the property is in one name or 50 euros if it is jointly owned.

Steven Rowle and the Trouble with Staffys 

I was prompted to write this short piece, after recently being called in to TAIL, the dog recue centre in Torrox Costa, to review a dog called Flower. Flower, as can be seen by her picture is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier and had been having some problems. The trouble with Staffys is they are on the dangerous dogs list in Spain and have been since 2008, which means you should have a dangerous dogs licence, know as a PPI licence, to keep one. There are quite a few hoops to jump through to get one, including having no criminal record and a psychological test. There must have been a crack-down of late, as there has been a sudden increase in Staffys being abandoned. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier resembles other tough breeds like the American Staffordshire and Pit Bull, and in certain circles in Spain are obtained for fighting, but these sturdy dogs look a lot tougher than they really are. Staffys would much rather romp around and play all day than fight, or even stand around and look imposing. They have a zest for life and love to be with people and they don’t particularly care what the activity is, watching TV, walking, running or going for a ride in the car, the Stafford just wants to be with the people he or she loves. They also don’t like to make their own choices about what to do, and therefore don’t like being left alone, so Staffordshire Bull Terriers are best suited for active families where someone is always at home with them. Despite their imposing look, Staffys are actually very good with children. Toddlers are not always recommended, but older kids who understand a dog’s boundaries will find that a Stafford will gladly accept the role of best friend and playmate.  Flower is no exception, after a thorough review and socialisation she has proved she is no different to any other Staffy and just wants a home and to be loved. If you think you could be that person, or you know someone who could, even if they live out of this country, then contact Me or TAIL directly for more info.                                           665-235-689      951-209-241  stevenrowle@outlook.com http://www.tailtorrox.org/contact-us
