I am also trying to sell my mom's property.  In order to sell

the tax balance needs to be zero so that the attorney in PR can fill out the "Caudal Relicito" which is a paper from the

Hacienda that gives permission to sell.

Sonia, if you ever go to the crim's office be aware that you will have to wait several hours here...  let me tell you from my personal experiences, every time I go there, I have to wait no less than 3 hours, while the case workers take their time, and always one person or two attending the clients...  its frustrating,  I am talking about the one at Humacao, and what I pay for

taxes its ridiculously, I retired in December to come and enjoyed my last years in the island of Puerto Rico, and after building a retirement home here... now, I come, and finally will sell my property., there is so much things going on here, that is not the place of retirement.,  I am glad, I will be going back to my home in Florida., were life is really enjoyable, and lots of regrets because, I looked forward living in Puerto Rico my last days..... but, my dream became a nightmare.  lots of luck.  Iris
