Do People in Puerto Rico Pay Property Taxes?

People in Puerto Rico pay property taxes on real property and personal property. Personal property taxes range from 5.8 percent in Ceiba to 8.83 percent in cities such as San Juan and Ciales.

All real property in Puerto Rico is subject to taxation except for property that serves as a primary residence and is valued at less than $150,000.
