It is levied annually at a rate of 1% on the property´s cadastral value exceeding DOP7,710,158.20 (US$140,623). Properties with values below the threshold amount are not taxed.
Income and capital gains earned by companies are subject to corporate income tax at a flat rate of 27%. Income-generating expenses are deductible when calculating taxable income.
