My mother keeps getting Valuation and Assessment Notices for land which she sold some ten years ago. She keeps throwing them away. How can I get them to stop sending her these Notices?
She should advise the NLA Customer Service offices of the change in ownership of the property. The forms relating to transfer of ownership should be completed and returned to the NLA Customer Service offices.
My application for Special Discretionary Relief was returned. It was not processed. Why?
It is likely that you may not have answered all the questions on the application. The application cannot be processed if important information is omitted. Please answer all questions. Information given is held in confidence.
I am eighty-two years old and have no other source of income but my pension. It is difficult for me to pay the new tax on my property. Can I be considered for relief?
Yes. The Ministry of Finance grants Special Discretionary Relief in genuine cases of hardship where elderly persons/pensioners find it burdensome to pay the Property Tax. Application forms are available at all Collectorates.
I am a farmer. I have been told that agricultural land is taxed at a reduced rate, is this so?
Yes. A relief of 50% of the tax is granted in cases where the land is used exclusively or principally for Agricultural purposes. Application (Derating) forms are available at the Collectorate nearest you.
