This got mixed in with a thread elsewhere that did not seem appropriate, so I am moving it here to clarify. For some time now, I have been confused about capital gains taxes should I ever sell my property. I had initially thought that, since this is my primary residence (my only residence actually), I did not have to pay capital gains. However, my attorney informed me that this was not the case at all as we were working on my Residente Permanente. Now, I am seeing this article. If I am reading it correctly, there are no capital gains taxes as long as you have lived in the property at least 3 years. This was signed by the Mexican Congress on October 18. Could someone else read this and tell me if I am missing something? Of course, I know I need to consult with a notario and I will if I am really going to sell. Thanks in advance!
