IVTM = Mechanical Traction Vehicle Tax

Note: this is the average amount, since the amount slightly varies depending on the issuing authority. IVTM is a direct tax on the ownership of mechanical traction vehicles that can be driven on public roads. It is paid to the local council where the vehicle is registered in accordance with article 95 of the Ley Reguladora de las Haciendas Locales, which establishes the fee payable by each vehicle. The local councils have the capacity to reduce or increase this tax. More information about the regional taxes can be found here.
