Do you have the "Big Green Form" handy? If so about half way down is a table headed "Δ ΣΤΟΙΧΕΙΑ ΕΚΚΑΘΑΡΙΣΗΣ ΕΝΙΑΙΟΥ ΤΕΛΟΥΣ ΑΚΙΝΗΤΩΝ". If the house is owned by more than one person then there is one line per person. The third column is headed "ΦΟΡΟΛΟΓΗΤΕΑ ΑΞΙΑ" (Taxable Value?) with an amount in it and the fourth column is headed "ΑΦΟΡΟΛΟΓΗΤΟ ΠΟΣΟ" (Taxed Amount?) also with an amount in it. I am not sure what the difference is between these two titles but if you add the two amounts together you get exactly the figure in Table E at bottom right of the page headed "ΑΞΙΑ ΑΚΙΝΗΤΟΥ" (Property Value?). I am guessing, therefore, that column 3 is the objective value of the land while column 4 is the objective value of the house.
The sixth column of Table Δ is headed "ΣΥΝΟΛΙΚΟ Ε.Τ.ΑΚ. and contains the actual amount of tax due. In our case the sixth column is simply the third column multiplied by 0.1 %. I am guessing, therefore, that we are only being taxed on the value of the land.
I would be interested to know if yours is calculated in the same way and if you are registered as tax resident. From the fact that you had such a high bill, I am guessing that you are NOT registered as tax resident.
