The Division of Property Tax announced on Thursday, July 21, to Virgin Islands property owners that the 2008 real property tax bills are being issued.
The 2008 bills are issued to the property owners of record as of January 1, 2009.
Property owners paying their 2008 property tax bills before the due date of August 20, 2011 will receive early payment discounts.
Persons who pay their 2008 tax bill by August 5 will be entitled to a 5 percent early payment discount.
Persons paying their tax bill after that date and before the due date will receive a discount of 2.5 percent. The bills become delinquent if not paid by October 20, 2011. Property owners are encouraged to pay the 2008 tax bill by January 20, 2012 in order to avoid late payment fees.
Property owners are also reminded to review their 2008 bill carefully. The tax bill now lists past due property taxes on the back and also reflects a prepayment credit for early payment of the 2007 bill.
For more information about the 2008 property tax bills, contact the Office of the Tax Assessor at 776-6737 on St. John. Questions regarding delinquencies should be addressed to the Tax Collector’s office at 776-6737 on St. John.
Property taxes can be paid at the Tax Collector’s Office on St. John at the Islandia Building.
Payments can be made in person or by mail. Checks, cash, money orders, ATM, debit and credit cards (Visa and Mastercard only) are accepted. Persons submitting their payments by mail are advised not to send cash.
