Property tax demand notices to be issued

The Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation will begin issuing demand notices for payment of property tax soon. The process of generating the notices has begun.

The decision to issue the notices has been taken as there has been no communication from the government after it issued a memo directing the corporation to collect property tax based on average rental value and plinth area.

“The first half year was already over. In the absence of any instructions from the government the corporation would be hard put to explain why the demand notices are not issued paving way for collection of tax,” says an official.

The demand notices, however, will be issued in a phased manner.

The notices will be first issued to the 55,000 assessees in whose property tax there has been no increase. Next comes the turn of those who have received the special notices but not filed revision petitions.

Notices will be issued to those who have filed revision petitions after disposing them of.
