Barbados Revenue Authority (BRA) has started issuing land tax bills for the financial year 2018-2019.

The BRA’s Manager, Communications and PR, Carolyn Williams-Gayle, has advised that the issue date for this year’s bill is September 24, 2018.

“In relation to the issue date on the bills, taxpayers can benefit from a 10 per cent discount if payment is made in full within 30 days and a five per cent discount if full payment is made within 60 days of this date,” she explained.

Williams-Gayle stated that bill payments could be made at the Authority’s locations at the Treasury Building, Bridgetown; Weymouth Corporate Centre, Roebuck Street, St Michael; Warrens Tower II, St Michael; Oistins, Christ Church; and Holetown, St James.

The opening hours for the Treasury Building and Holetown are Monday to Friday between 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., while the other locations are 8:15 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The manager also encouraged persons to use the alternative payment options offered by the Authority.

“These include using the drop boxes for cheques; wire transfers for those persons living overseas; and paying online using EzPay on the government portal. This last option requires persons to register for this service and a direct link to registration can be found on our website,” she explained.

Outside of the billing for this year, she added that the Authority was following through with focusing on land tax defaulters and would be issuing a list of properties for sale. (BGIS)
