SAT stops 104 customs agents due to lowball values

Post by Intercasa on Tue Jul 14, 2015 9:34 am

As you may have read when I broke my story in November, 2013 regarding 2014 new taxes and issues, I stated

"Also, customs is going to be checking the value of imported goods more closely and communicating with the countries where merchandise is leaving, to check declared values. People may be more likely to get caught if their car nationalization pedimento says the car is worth just $10,000 pesos, while it clearly is worth much more."

Customs did exactly this and is seizing property of 9 importers and shut down over 100 for defrauding the Mexican government out of more than $3,000,000 dollars as well as providing falsified papers saying the cars were legally exported from the US.

Original press release in Spanish

http://www.sat.gob.mx/sala_prensa/comunicados_nacionales/Paginas/com2015_077.aspx

Frauds still abound with "Regularizations, judicial facturas (falsified court papers), plates from Michoacan, Mexico City and the State of Mexico, fake pedimentos" as well as paperwork from ejidos saying your are in the process of nationalizing, with some people driving around for over 4 years with those papers. Nationalization can be done but to do it right is even more expensive now, plan on paying $3,000US or more as a minimum for most cars.

Okay,so if a person willing to pay the $3000,how do you suggest they do it?
Are the imports still limited to 2006-2007 models?

Tim Welch and Jayme are reporting that they can import vehicles at the border, and that they show up in the federal databases. Sonia has also confirmed costs over the $3,000US mark.

To quote an email

Any year can be done. The costs vary greatly and depend on VIN right now. In other words, the prices are no longer by year. There is an amparo on 2006 and 2007 models but only 12 cars per day are allowed in Laredo using the amparo which means most people still have to pay the 100% tax on those cars if they aren't willing to wait in line for weeks to hopefully have the amparo applied to their car.

So, to answer your question a little more directly, the prices are higher than before but there's no way to give you an estimate because some cars come back ridiculously inexpensive (compared to the past) and the next car, because of it's perceived value to the Mexican aduana, makes your head spin.
