Important Message About Land Tax

31 March, 2016

The Office of the Tax Commissioner would like to advise Residential Property Owners of the following important information regarding LAND TAX for the period 1 January – 30 June 2016.

As a result of the decision made on 21 March 2016 in the House of Assembly to retroactively apply adjusted land tax rates effective 1 January 2016, residential property owners should be aware of the following:

  • Existing due dates for this period are no longer valid. The revised due date for all residential properties is 30 June 2016.
  • If you have already paid your land tax for the period, a credit adjustment will be reflected on your next demand notice for the period 1 July – 31 December 2016. No refunds for overpayments will be processed.
  • If you have not yet paid your land tax bill you can do either of the following:
    • Wait until you receive a revised demand notice in the mail and settle the amount due by 30 June 2016, or;
    • Pay the corrected amount now without waiting for a revised demand notice. To find out the adjusted land tax amount for your ARV either call our office or use the Land Tax Calculator.
  • If you are the owner or deemed owner of a property and have NOT received a demand notice, please contact the Office of the Tax Commissioner promptly so that your contact information can be verified.

For more information contact us by phone at 298-6351, 297-7743 or 294-5827 or by email at

The Office of the Tax Commissioner thanks you for your cooperation and patience.
