If you work under the table you don't......legally if you work in P.R. you have to pay taxes.

But the question is what kind of tax you are talking about?.....sales tax? or income tax?......there are many taxes in P.R. especially hidden.

Claro que si

Somebody has to pay for the $26.9 Billion the Puerto Rico government will spend this year, so, yes besides sales taxes [IVU] you also pay INCOME TAXES to El Departamento de HACIENDA , property and certain other taxes to CRIM [Centro de Recaudacion de Ingresos Municipales- which is essentially the local tax assessor and those taxes are now paid every quarter as is done in most towns on the mainland]. If you are a federal employee or have federal obligations you also pay taxes to the IRS. Corporations also pay to Hacienda and sometimes to the IRS.

By the way, as a source of comparison the NJ budget where 8 million people live [versus 4 million in Puerto Rico] is $29 billion this fiscal year. However this figure probably triples when you add county, municipal and special budgets for NJ and perhaps doubles when you add the municipal expenditures for PR .
