LostKitty Posted May 21, 2022 Report Share Posted May 21, 2022 Regarding the use of the word "must" in reports of the need to acquire an RFC #... ...does anyone happen to know how this new tax law (which apparently requires folks to acquire an RFC #) and, specifically, the July 1 registration deadline, applies to a Residente Permanente who a) doesn't currently own or rent a home or land in Mexico (so can't produce any utility bills or a rental lease in their name), b) doesn't own a car, c) doesn't work or otherwise receive income in Mexico and d) doesn't have any Mexican bank accounts? Said another way, what happens if the July 1st deadline passes and a residente permanente who falls under the above set of categories hasn't sought out an RFC? IOW if someone doesn't currently have a need to acquire an RFC (because they don't own or rent, don't have Mexican bank account(s), don't work in Mexico and don't own a car) or otherwise can't produce a required document (like a lease or utility bill) can they essentially put-off/delay the process of acquiring an RFC until such time as they do have the need and/or can produce a required document? Just tying to ascertain if some sort of penalty will be imposed and/or if not having an RFC by the July 1 deadline will in any way jeopardize someone's residency status, particularly their permanent residency status. I envision car-free, full- or part-time permanent resident housesitters and anyone else who, say, lives with someone else who is themselves the listed party on a home or lease and on all utility accounts, car ownership documents, bank accounts, etc., as being particularly interested in the answer to the questions I've posed. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
