INM in PV Checking Expats Earning Income

Recommended Posts

We sign people up for work papers and get them registered as REPECOs or small businesses (many activities fall under this umbrella for business that do not need to give facturas) where they can do their own bimonthly tax filings without the need for an accountant and the taxes are small, $220 pesos minimum tax every two months for gross income up to $18,000 pesos. I have seen less than professional behavior from many local accountants so we try to set people up to where they do not need the services of an accountant where possible.

We have signed up seller from some of the local markets as REPECOs as it is an inexpensive way to be in compliance where you are not spending more money on accounting fees than you make.

What is the fee for a REPECO and can one get a REPECO with a Temporado and not a Permanente?

We charge 2,000 pesos to set people up with the tax authority and yes we can set people up who have temporary visas, we did it alot with FM2 and FM3 and it should be the same but we haven´t done any under the new rules so there may be an adjustment period.

Maybe the Google translator is incorrect but I see a problem with most people getting permission with the SAT requirement of showing how much money a person earned the year before. If the person was working illegally, he will not want to disclose that and if he was not working he cannot show any income.

REPECOS Jalisco:

  • En caso de encontrarse inscritos en otra entidad federativa, deberá cumplir con alguno de los siguientes requisitos:
  • Constancia de inscripción expedida por el SAT
  • Aviso de inscripción ante el SAT con su hoja anexa de autorización
  • Comprobante de inscripción de otras entidades federativas
  • Should be enrolled in another federal entity , must meet one of the following requirements:
  • Proof of registration issued by the SAT
  • Notice of registration with the SAT with authorization attached sheet
  • Proof of enrollment in other states
SAT:

It is have earned up to 2,000,000 which is to say if you earned over 2,000,000 the last year you cannot qualify as REPECO. Most people we sign up have zero incomne the prior year so there is no issue with the 2 million mark.

Good, then people who want to sell things at markets and worked illegally before, do not need to report any prior income. They can start fresh by being approved as a REPECO and not worry about papers being checked. What about INM? I know or thought that before the rules changed, that people paid a different fee to have a work permit. If we have an existing temporado do we only need the REPECO and nothing through INM?

The two work hand in hand, one is immigration compliance and the other is tax compliance, immigration will check that you have registered and for future renewals will want to see that you have filed and paid your taxes.

In the second case, a person, whose name I will not disclose, was found offering professional services from a

home-based business. This person had lived here for many years, as a tourist, and was planning to go to the border to get a new Visitor (a.k.a. Tourist) visa to replace one that expired in May. Once detained, the person was charged with practicing a profession without a license, zoning violations, operating a business without a permit, working without a permit, unlawful permanence in Mexico, tax fraud, and, because this person offered a bribe to the arresting Immigration officers, bribery of a federal officer. Other than the zoning violations and

the operation of a business without a permit, all other offenses are penalized with prison and deportation.

The more I think about this the more it seems to me that someone turned these two in thinking they were both illegal. It looks like these two businesses had an enemy who wanted to cause them problems not that INM was randomly inspecting. Have there been any others or is it limited to these two?

I read one woman's story that she was working illegally, was caught and she was fined $50 USD equivalent and told to not work or to get legal. She wasn't deported or arrested.

It is easy to find the people working illegally, generally they place ads in the gringos newspapers and won't list their name nor address . The above case looks like a cheapskate who was a doctor or lawyer as it mentions practicing a profession without a license.

" and, because this person offered a bribe to the arresting Immigration officers, bribery of a federal officer."
