One must ensure that they have a current Property Tax Notice from the Inland Revenue; this can be a Demand Notice (Tax Bill) or an Arrear Notice. The name of the property owner must be entered as it appears on your bill, eg. Wade, John Alfred O.
When taxes for the current year are paid in full before the due date, a discount of five percent (5%) is given.
Where taxes are not paid by the due date and corresponding grace period, late payment fees of 5% penalty and a further penalty of 5% per annum are added on the balance due.
Persons making payment must have legal authority or be authorised by the property owner(s) to make a payment. Copies of this authority must be sent to the Inland Revenue.
Where you do not have a tax bill in your possession you are advised to contact the Tax Office for relevant documents.
When making your payment you must distinguish between current year tax and overdue amounts for earlier years.
