Portugal: 50% reduction on the Vehicle Tax for Large Families

According to the recently approved Law large families will have a 50% discount on the tax you have to pay when buying a car for your family, starting January 1st 2016. The maximum amount the discount can reach is 7.800 Euros and can only be applied to vehicles that have CO2 emissions lower than 150g/km. 

The law is applicable for families with more than three children or for families with three children provided that two of them are under 8 years of old.

The Portuguese Large Families Association welcomed this measure, but drew attention to the fact that families with more than 5 children need vehicles with more than 7 seats that don’t have CO2 emissions lower than required.
