Mexicoafterlife Posted May 22, 2022 Report Share Posted May 22, 2022 Well I understand why the govt is getting this way with residents. My first house I rented here was owned by a american. Both her Gardner and her thought that our walled in yard was ok to be trespassed on anytime. We would be in our house or in the pool and next thing they come walking thru. So we went to our lawyer here and found out our lease wasn't legal. 1 not on English and Spanish 2. She had no tax number! My lawyer let us know that thus is super common in the lake chapala area. X pats rent out properties and don't pay the rental tax. And from what I was told is 35%! Well she has been renting that property for over 20 years, straight from her mouth. If I was the govt and had this many problems I would tighten down fast too. Best part with her is my lawyer gave her a chance to solve the problem out of court. She said she would never settle. Now she is going to court where she will be exposed for tax evasion. Lol over 20 years of renters taxes she will have to pay plus interest and penalties. And she isn't a citizen stayed a full time resident so she could lose her visa too. So I understand why the govt is doing this alot of xpats are cheating the system Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
