Property Tax Benefits You Can Avail Of This Year

In a bid to encourage home owners to pay their property taxes within time and consequently enjoy conveniences that municipal corporations thereby facilitate, authorities across the country are offering several incentives.

Let us look at what is on offer:

  • If all goes well, senior citizens, widows, physically handicapped and estranged women in Kolkata may see up to 10 per cent of relief with respect to their property tax. To make up for the loss, the Kolkata Municipal Corporation may need to introduce a utilisation fee on its land and buildings.
  • Early this year, prior to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) elections, a proposal was passed to waive property taxes for those who lived in homes sizing less than 500 sqft. Sixty per cent concession was allowed for those who lived in homes spreading 500-700 sqft. The BMC will suffer revenue loss of over Rs 500 crore to offer this incentive.
