When must property tax be paid? The buyer is required to notify the authorized tax authority within 30 days of executing the sales contract to determine the property purchase tax. Once the tax authority issues a decision on the tax amount, the buyer must pay it within 15 days of receiving the decision. If payment is not made within this timeframe, interest will be charged.
