The tax agency is going electronic with payments for property transfers and for vehicle sales.
The Dirección General de Tributación said that as of Tuesday, the use of the online EDDI-7 to produce forms will be obligatory with one exception. The paper forms that have been used in the past can be submitted until the supply is exhausted or until April 15, which ever comes first, said the agency. The forms are D-120 and D-121 either in paper or on the computer.
The EEDI-7 system is the same one being used to report monthly sales tax and annual income tax. With property transfers and vehicle sales, the form output by the system will go to the bank with the appropriate fee, the agency said. A copy, of course, also goes to Tributación.
Some notaries who handle property transfers and vehicle transfers already are online with the Banco de Costa Rica in a system when they pay all the fees electronically. That will not change, said Tributación.
