The Inland Revenue Department is reminding property owners in the Virgin Islands that in accordance with the Property Tax Ordinance, Cap 207 (as amended), Property Tax for the year 2020 is due and payable September 1st to November 30th.
The Property Tax list includes the name(s) of proprietor(s) and the amount of tax due. The list which comprises the registration sections can be viewed at various public buildings throughout the Territory, including the Central Administration Complex and the Inland Revenue Department offices on Tortola and Virgin Gorda, in addition to the District Offices on Anegada and Jost Van Dyke.
Property owners in the Virgin Islands are advised that the Magistrate will listen to objections on the 2020 assessment of property at a court sitting on Friday, October 9th at 10:0a.m. Due to restrictions with Covid-19, the court sitting will be conducted via zoom at https://zoom.us/j/93883214076?pwd=MzFvaUdPcXp3am9Ea1hZd3FQR3Z4UT09.
Property owners are encouraged to pay the 2020 Property Tax at this time to avoid interest being charged at twenty percent per annum. Owners should also pay or arrange a payment schedule with the Inland Revenue Department to liquidate any outstanding Property Tax. Legal transactions are not processed for “Stamp Duty” purposes unless the tax relating to the parcel is paid.
