The Division of Real Property has begun to issue the 2012 real property tax bills to Virgin Islands property owners.
The 2012 bills are issued to all property owners of record as of January 1, 2013.
Property owners will again have the opportunity to take advantage of early payment discounts. A 5 percent discount will be applied to bills paid by August 15, 2013.
Property owners who pay their 2012 bill after that date and before the bill due date of August 30 will receive a 2.5 percent discount.
Property owners are encouraged to pay their 2012 tax bill by October 30 in order to avoid late payment fees. The deadline for filing appeals with the Board of Tax Review regarding tax assessments is November 15, 2013.
Virgin Islands property owners are reminded that they can pay their 2012 property tax bills even if they have not yet received the bill in the mail. Cashiers at all Tax Collector Office locations are able to access property information to facilitate the payment transaction.
Payments for the 2012 property taxes and all past due years 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. Payments of checks, cash, money orders, ATM, debit and credit cards (Visa and Mastercard only) are accepted at the window. Property owners submitting their payments by mail are advised not to send cash and also enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope in order to receive proof of payment.
