    If the condo's government appraised value is below the 5,000,000 threshold, then you're exempt.

    From Guzman Ariza's Tax Overview:
    Real Property Tax

    A 1% annual tax is assessed on any real property owned by individuals, based on the value of the property as appraised by the government authorities. (Articles 1 to 3 of Law #18-88). Properties are valued without taking into account any furniture or equipment to be found in them. For built lots, the 1% is calculated only for values exceeding RD$5 million pesos. For unbuilt lots, the 1% tax is calculated on the actual appraised value without the RD$5 million pesos exemption. Individuals must pay this tax every year on or before March 11, or in two equal installments: 50% on or before March 11, and the remaining 50%, on or before September 11.

    The RD$5 million pesos threshold is adjusted annually for inflation.

    The following properties are exempt from this tax:

    (1) Built properties valued at RD$5,000,000 or below.
    (2) Farm properties.
    (3) Properties whose owners are 65 years old or older, who have owned it for more than 15 years and have no other property in their name.
    (4) Properties subject to the Tax on Assets.

    Although this the law ,there are a few sections that are not being enforced ..For example , those people who come to the DR from another country for the winter and stay for more than 6 months , are not being asked to pay tax on their financial income earned abroad
