Has anyone tried using.........propertytax.vi.gov . All I get is a red lock with a big X on it. Plus it says "Your connection is not Private" and then it says "Attackers might be trying to steal your information from propertytax.vi.gov (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards). (NET ::ERR_CERT_DATE_INVALID). Does this mean that the Holidays have started early and as such we can't search the database?

You may want to call them to inquire.

I just checked the website for the heck of it and my browser told me:

Safari can't verify the identity of the website "propertytax.vi.gov"

The certificate for the website is invalid. You might be connecting to a website that is pretending to be "propertytax.vi.gov which could put your confidential information at risk.

Must depend on the security settings on your browser, or lack thereof.

I tried again and got the same message.

I have an older version of Safari and got the certificate warning as well but was able to get to the site by clicking "continue". With the older browser it happens on several sites. If your OS doesn't support the updated version of Safari you can eliminate the issue by downloading Firefox or Google Chrome as an alternate.

I'm on the latest stuff on a mac, not using an old browser:

OS X Yosemite
Safari v 8.0.7

I wouldn't recommend that anyone continue to load the page, it might have been hacked.

You never know!

It probably either means it was hacked, or the VI let its certificate run out past the certification expiration date's grace period, which would mean the actual site can more easily be hacked. Either way, I wouldn't go there.

Maybe they spent all the web site maintenance budget on luxury sheets, personal chefs and nice hotels? 😉

I don't hesitate to load a site when that certificate pop-up shows but I wouldn't fill out any forms or anything else unless I verified it first. As Alana said, check directly with the property tax office.
