About mexican migration law, it changed a few years ago.....
You don't loose your Australian citizenship you can keep both
About owning land close from the coast, the law changed a few months ago.
Before that changes, people owned the land signing contracts with trust companies, but now they can buy directly
About the tax obligations, that depends if you are going to work in Mexico or if you receive your money from overseas, like the retired people who receive money from a pension found or retirement plan
The only taxes you will pay if you live in Mexico and buy a real state, it's the "predial tax", or land tax. This one, it's pay directly to the city once a year between january and march
the "predial" or land tax it's calculated by the land value per square meter, about any other taxes like the income tax, this one will only be paid if you work here in Mexico or open a business here
If your parents or your husband send you money from Australia or anyother country, they already pay the income tax there so you don't have to pay anything else to the mexican goverment

HOla , hope you are well.
I have a Mexican company with land holdings.I've had 9 years of fm2 and fm3 and have paid all my taxes etcThis year in Feb 2013 the Mexican immigration dept said they would process me as a permanent resident because of my company.They had to locate my office in Tulum and said that in April 2013 they tried and couldn't find it (not surprising as most of tulum has no road signs or st numbers) and refused me my permanent resident status as a result.Meanwhile everytime my accountant checked the segob website it never said that and in fact they granted me two permisos to leave Mexico for 60 days, including in October 2013, as if my status was still in process. Then when I went to get a permiso to leave on 16th of December at immigration in Cancun they said they couldn't and made me sign a piece of paper which said that I needed to leave Mexico within 20 days. There office closed two days later and there was nothing I could do cos of the time frame.At the airport the day I left they again made me sign a paper saying I had been in mexico illegally and made me fill out a tourist card.WHERE DOES THIS LEAVE ME?CAN I GO BACK IN AS A TOURIST?If so, can I just remain in Mexico for 180 days and then leave as a tourist . I won't be working there just selling up or closing my company. FRANKLY NOW I AM DONE WITH MEXICO , the country is in a mess and if they kick out someone like me who has complied every step of the way for 9 years their systems are a joke.But I need to know how to protect myself from here forward , and MORE THAN ANYTHING, i need to get back into Mexico to get my dogs out , any thoughts?,Best, Fiona
I do NOT have the necessary money they need me to show for a year in my bank account to get a visa in my own country.
Also , can you please translate this statement in the paper they gave me when they told me I had 20 days in which to leave the country. "con fundamento en los articulos ......., se hace de su conocimiento que en contra de la presente resolucion puede ser recurrible mediante la interposicion del recurso de revision"
mil gracias, Fiona
