Meriden posted Teach English?Need a roommate? on the Hungary forum:
Hi! I am 50ish gal who would like to teach English in Hungary. After visiting this country in 2008, I completely fell in love with it. Just beginning my search attempts. Don't have my teaching certification but have plenty of years teaching in the public school system. I wasn't also sure of the housing affordability in Budapest. Help??

Hi I am new here and I need some help.I would like to retire in Hungary with my wife. I am US citizen my wife has a green card.Both of us are from hungary.Could some body outline the steps we have to take to move back to Hungary.Do we have to pay property tax to US on the house we purchase in hungary? Thanks so much Peter

Yes, 4% is in effect now. There is still a minor property tax which is taxed by the city. Apparently it is less if you are a permanent resident. Still it is less than $400 a year for us. Wew have other weird taxes though which are also trivial in comparison to US property tax. One of our pieces of land has no house on it so we must pay something called a land pressure tax. Beats me what that is but it is pretty much the same as having a house. There are also different rates for year round and summer only houses the latter being about twice as much. Getting a summer only house re-registered as a year round live in is expensive though. I have a German friend who just did that and it cost him roughly 4%. So, if you are buying a house make sure it is registered as a year round house. Here near Lake Balaton there are a lot of houses which are only for summer use. Many of those are up for sale.

It's a flat 4% tax of the purchase price. The 11% in nonsense, and I must wonder what motivated the commenter to spend the effort write such nonsense. There are some strange birds poking their beaks in here at times... There is no property tax - by the way. There may be some truly miniscule amounts in some municipalities masquerading as "property tax" but they are really nothing - compared to the US.
