RENTAL INCOME
Rental income earned by nonresidents from leasing non-commercial residential properties is taxed at a flat rate of 7%. Rental income is exempt from taxation when the tenants are students.

CAPITAL GAINS
Nonresidents earning capital gains realized from the sale of real property not connected with business activities are not liable to pay tax as of 2009.

Capital gains are computed by deducting acquisition costs and related expenses from the selling price. Capital gains are classified as either short-term assets or long-term assets.

Short-term assets are properties which are sold after three years of ownership or less. For short-term gains, 70% of the capital gains are taxable and are included in the taxable earnings.

Long-term assets are properties held for more than three years of ownership. For long-term capital gains, only 35% of the capital gains are taxable and are included in the taxable earnings.
