2011 Property Tax Bills Can Be Paid Before Bill Received in Mail

By Source Staff — March 7, 2013

Virgin Islands property owners are advised that although the 2011 property tax bills have been released and are in the mail, they can pay their bill even if they have not yet received the bill. Cashiers at all Tax Collector Offices locations are able to access property information to facilitate the payment transaction, according to a press release issued Thursday by the V.I. Office of the Lieutenant Governor.
“Providing this option to property owners is an effort of the Division of Real Property Tax to improve the service that we offer to our customers,” said Tax Assessor Ira Mills. “It will allow more property owners to take advantage of the early payment discounts and avoid any long lines.” A 5 percent discount will be applied to bills paid by March 25. Payments made after March 25 and before the bill due date of April 8, will be discounted by 2.5 percent.
Payments for the 2011 property taxes can be paid at the Tax Collector’s Offices at the following locations:
St. John: Islandia Building
St. Thomas: Builders Emporium

I have not recieved mine as yet.
It is not wonderful to have to plop down $$$ for property taxes just before you have to pay your income taxes!

Just called the Tax Accessor's Office on STX 340-773-6459 - Ms. Powell (she was very nice). Gave her my parcel # and she gave me my 2011 property tax dollar amount. Deadline for the 5% discount is Monday 3/25. Just bring an old copy of property bill or know your parcel # and you can pay your taxes. Some bills went out yesterday (3/11/13) others to follow later this week. Haven't gotten mine yet but am going to pay before 3/25. 5% discount is a 5% savings. Not counting on the VI Gov't to get me my bill before the deadline.

I am curious when the new rates are going into effect? Last thing I read (article 2011) is that the 2010 bill would be the first with the new rates and assessments. News about this has been very quiet and looking at my current bill we are still at 1.25%. I know that when I bought the property in Nov. the 2011 taxes were figured at the current rate and the 2012 taxes were figured at the new rate. Maybe the next bill will be the one?
All so confusing. lol
