I have been getting my personal income tax papers together and ran into my VI property tax bill from this year, dated 2006 ( which I paid ed this year).Do I pay up all the back years now?, let the VI government catch up on the years back? How do I find out what I still owe? Will the VI government file a tax lien against my property? Any in-site on what to do I don't want to pay 4 or 5 years property tax at one shot, but I don't want a tax sale on my house.I woke up at 3 am and started thinking about all this.

You can check online using your property parcel number. They also will show copies of all your tax bills. The link to the site is on the Lt. Governors site.

Thanks for the info. Eric, The site must have issues. I tried to get the tax bills, but it shows no such parcel. I have lived there for ten years.I'll try during business hours next week.The web site said no tax fines for 07,08,09, and 10 will be levied.

Today's Daily News has an article explaining it all, and the news isn't the best. 2007 bills will be sent in Februaru, then the 2008 bills will be sent this summer. Seems unfair that we're gonna get hit with two years' worth of property tax bills in a six month period. The bills will be at the 1998 level, but still.

This is just another example of of the type of government ineptitude that we're discussiong in the Sickout thread.

Cruzans do it better.

I have heard on several occasions that it is illegal to issue taxes for more than one year in a year. Does anyone know if this is true?

Not True! The Tax is being held up by the Courts not the VI Administration. We all know the tax will be due and we should escrow for it.

i was just thinking, if i know i have to pay rent or any other customary bill, i'd be socking it away because it's an expense that does not go away. you could be earning interest on the money too. or could have been. i am sure lots of people did do this lizard, but apparently a lot of people did not.

even if not sure of the amount, at least i would not have to come up with it out of thin air.:S

best to you,
anita.

Agree with Anita. And on the bright side, at least the property tax rate here is very low.

In this bogus reassessment, my property value went from 300K to 1.6M for a very most wood frame home. All of my neighbors remained the same. When we fought it, the new assessment went up $100. I can handle the old rate, but the whole reassessment that was done by Bearing Point is wrong on so many levels.

Better watch out what you say derogatory regarding government employees & locals in here...you'll get in a lot of flack for telling the truth!
I know I did.
But, the day will come when they blurt something out & you can call them the hypocrites they are(I know I did)!

And likewise(at least we can agree on that, I've always been less than amused by yours).
And, are you really "local", I don't think so(and neither do the real locals)!
And, I believe you are a renter here(not enough $ and/or faith that you would remain to make that commitment.
Just my .02:D

sometimes it's not what you say but how you say it.

it's unfortunate that some employees can mark their colleagues by their actions but in any office it can happen.

i work with and have worked with many "locals" who are competent, diligent, and committed to providing quality service. they are not an urban myth. i have also experienced rudeness from government and other employees in my life. i don't mark them all.

government being what it is, it is likely that the person you are poking at is frustrated at having to be on the front line without the wherewithal or purview to resolve your difficulty. some give up and get crunchy over time. customers can be really nasty too.

best to you,
anita.

DUN, why did you feel the need for a personal attack on me? I've been posting on this board for more than 8 years and have always been able to make my points without devolving to personal attack. I did not say you were an evil person, or that I hated you, or that you were stupid, or poor or really anything like that. I said I was offended by some of your posts. Pretty easy to understand.

I believe stating your thoughts and opinions in a considered, respectful, way is necessary if you are interested in communication. But if you are only interested in being offensive, you're doing a fine job.

here here.

As well... Buying vs renting is a fecetious argument, just like the born here or not -B.S.

re: back taxes...
The govt is going to have to concede on the schedule. Too many people did not escrow and it would be political suicide to pretend otherwise.
