Confotur is the name of the Dominican law that grants tax exemptions to owners of specific properties.

Only certain properties are covered by Confotur. A builder or developer has to apply to the government to be granted Confotur.

Why buy a house in a development that "has Confotur"?

Simple: you can save thousands of dollars.

Why? Because Confotur means you don't have Confotur. Confotur means you don't have to pay certain taxes.

Some key details:

Which taxes are you exempt from paying?

Transfer tax: 3% of the value of the property, due when transferring ownership.

Purchase a property with Confotur and you’re exempt from both of these!

And if you buy or build a resort, hotel or hotel complex, you get an exemption from:

Import taxes: On machinery, materials,, and equipment to improve these types of projects, as long as they have a minimum of 5 years (verifiable) since construction.

What if I buy or own more than one property?

If a project is covered by the Confotur law, it’s excluded when calculating the value of all real estate assets owned. If you own other projects and their combined value exceeds the threshold amount (approximately US$150,000), you pay 1% of the amount above this threshold.

What property developments will have Confotur?

The Dominican government created the Confotur law to boost development in existing tourist areas and areas with potential to become tourist hotspots.

Essentially, the law incentivizes activities that contribute to the tourism industry and encourage real estate development in underdeveloped areas.

It’s important to note that not all development in these regions automatically has Confotur. As mentioned earlier, owners, builders and developers have to apply and be granted Confotur.

What property developments will have Confotur?
