The Law of Economic Reactivation, approved by the National Assembly on December 27, 2017, includes the elimination, since this year, of the tax on rural lands, which was in force since 2010.

However, those who have outstanding values for canceling between 2010 and 2017 for this tax, should fill out the form 111 online, on the page of the Internal Revenue Service (SRI):
There they will enter the menu “Declarations”, then “Tax return” and finally “Preparation and submission of statements” to enter the SRI system with your RUC or ID number and your password. Next they will go to the bottom of that web page, where they will find form 111 for the declaration of the tax to the rural lands, that still have pending to cancel.
