Property Tax

Imbert: It is clear people want to pay the Property Tax

Finance Minister Colm Imbert says it is clear to the Ministry of Finance that people are willing to pay the Property Tax and he said that's why the Cabinet has agreed to extend the deadline for submission of forms to June 5th.

Speaking at today's post-Cabinet media conference, Minister Imbert said the fact that people are lining up to submit the forms, shows that they have not acceded to the calls by some to "rip up forms" and not pay the tax.

The Minister told the media that 60,000 forms were submitted last week and another 90,000 this week ahead of the May 22nd deadline.
