Welcome to the Expats Portugal forum!

Since 2005, this forum has had over 6,000 people sign up and take part in our community.

It is a place for people who want to move to Portugal and for those already living here to meet and share knowledge through our community.

With the recent revamp of the site, we have chosen to keep the forum on the website rather than create a social media group as we know there are people concerned about privacy and who owns their data. Plus there is a wealth of information from the years gone by that we did not want to lose.

But this forum is nothing without your input. So come on in, take a look around, ask questions and answer a few.

Road tax (IUC) refund

Portugal has lost a case in Brussels regarding the annual road tax of older vehicles imported into the country.
Unfortunately, as with most taxes, any refunds can only be given up to for up to 4 years, so if you imported your car in 2007, you will not get a full refund.
Your car needs to be originally registered in the EU prior to July 2007 for this to have any effect, as the IUC before that date was very low. Cars first registered before 1981 are free of IUC.
