NO. 66/2014 DATE: October 17, 2014
REMINDER TO PROPERTY OWNERS
ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, Friday, October 17, 2014: The Ministry of Finance and Energy advises Taxpayers with Property Tax notices showing their property as Agriculture Idle, that, once the property is not cultivated (it is idle), their Property Tax bill must be paid.
In the situation where the Taxpayer’s property is actually cultivated and not idle as stated on the Property Tax Notice, the Taxpayer must fill out an Objection Form, which can be obtained from the Valuation Division of the Ministry of Finance or from any District Revenue Office. The Valuation Division will then investigate the case and inform the Taxpayer accordingly.
Taxpayers must also bear in mind that their accounts will accumulate arrears once the Property Tax Bill remains unpaid.
Please be guided accordingly.
