​Taxes When Buying a Home

When buying a house, you will have to pay stamp tax, consumption tax, registration and license tax, real estate acquisition tax, and other taxes.

Stamp Tax

Stamp tax is a tax that is imposed on contracts when a purchase agreement for the sale of a house or a mortgage contract is signed. The  amount of tax is determined by the amount of money stated in the contract. In principle, the tax is paid by affixing revenue stamps to the contract and stamping a seal.
