Road Tax

Better known in Portugal as IUC

IUC is a tax on the ownership of a vehicle and it replaces the former “car stamp”. It must be paid annually, whether it is a light, heavy, passenger or goods vehicle.


What is IUC?

Road Tax is an annual tax on ownership of a vehicle. The calculation of the IUC payable is based on:

  • The first registration date: the more recent it is, the higher the amount payable;
  • The higher the engine capacity, the higher the amount payable;
  • And the type of fuel: diesel cars pay slightly more tax compared to petrol cars.

How does payment work?

  • In the registration year: it must be paid between the registration day and the 90 subsequent days
  • In subsequent years: it must be paid by the end of the car registration month

This tax must be paid by the car owner or lessee, directly at the Inland Revenue Portal, at your bank branch, or via home banking, at ATM, the Portuguese Post Office (CTT) or at any Inland Revenue Service.
