We are still waiting to be sent our IMI tax demands. We visited the Albufeira Rates Office in Mid May to be told that as UK tax payers they had been delayed and would be sent out in early June. We explained we would not be in Portugal again until July and were then asked to fill in forma so the Rates demand would be sent to our UK address. Now 22nd of June and still no Rates demand.

Anyone else going through this and any advice as we were told if not paid by the end of June we would be fined!

You can check your status on line if you register for access to the Finanças portal.

http://www.portaldasfinancas.gov.pt/at/html/index.html" rel="nofollow - http://www.portaldasfinancas.gov.pt/at/html/index.html but it not available in English.

But I had to ask for new password which I mistakenly asked for by post and am still waiting 10 days later.

Thanks Cabsur

Took a look and fell at the first hurdle but that's my fault for not learning enough of the language. My Portuguese bank now boasts it is in English so I clicked on the link as it was! Then clicked on a subject and went back to Portuguese! So as I say must try to learn some more but it is hard for an oldun.

Up to now, our IMI demand has arrived in the UK by post around 22nd March, but nothing so far this year. Has anyone else in Albufeira, who has their demand sent to the UK, received anything yet? Or any news on IMI in general, such as the council cancelling it?!!

Good shout. No, we haven’t received or heard anything.
We get ours, usually March, June and November, but nothing yet. Sod’s law now says it will arrive tomorrow!

Nothing received in UK yet.

Expect it will go out late again and then be fined for not paying it before we received it like 2 years ago when they sent it in June for payment by end of April !!!!

For the life of me I cannot understand why they will not allow for an annual variable direct debit to be set up from my Portuguese bank account.

Lovely, lovely people but an old adage about organising a party in a brewery come to mind.

Not had ours yet and there's nothing showing on the Financas website for 2018.
Usually we get it in the post around 14th/15th March.
Strange when the charge is for the period 1st Jan to 31st Dec and yet here we are almost in April and they still haven't sent it.
But then again, it's probably not strange at all Wink

I hate how peopleï compare Frank Zappa to God. I mean, he's cool and great and nice and everything, but he's no Zappa.

We always get ours early. Think it’s because ours comes through our accountant.

There's been a thread going on facebook regarding folks not receiving their IMI and some folks have said they have now changed the 1st payment to May.Whether its true is another thing.

Payment is indeed now due in May - see http://contaspoupanca.pt/2019/01/01/2019-imi-comeca-a-ser-pago-em-maio/" rel="nofollow - https://contaspoupanca.pt/2019/01/01/2019-imi-comeca-a-ser-pago-em-maio/

Also IMI of between €100 and €500 can now be paid in two instalments, more than €500 can be made in three. And for the first time by direct debit.

Brilliant link Cubsur, thanks very much.....

ALSO

In the item is a link to another post that describes how IMI (and other taxes, possibly including car tax!) can be paid by Direct Debit.    I never knew/didn't think this was possible, so may be new. Any way , a great find and for many should/will avoid the added stress of remembering when payments are due / the risk of late payment penalties!

Now just need to follow the helpful guide!.....

Thank you, that has made it crystal clear.

wow, are they learning that a direct debit is much easier for folks to pay their IMI and of course  end of day they are being  paid direct without any correspondence /posting on bills etc. Do  you have to register for this on  financas website??

"Do  you have to register for this on  financas website??"

Yes and direct debit is a new idea. Previously I paid via Multibanco.
