MANDEVILLE, Manchester — Owners and occupiers of premises in Manchester are being urged to take advantage of the two days that the property tax mobile unit will be in the parish this week to settle outstanding payments.

The deadline to pay property tax for the 2018-2019 financial year is March 31.

The Ministry of Local Government and Community Development and Tax Administration of Jamaica mobile unit will be at the James Warehouse Complex in Mandeville on Wednesday, March 27 and Thursday, March 28 between the hours of 9:00am- 3:00pm.

Kyana Morgan, regional property tax coordinator, based at the Manchester Municipal Corporation Property Tax Unit, said that payments can also be made at the tax office in the parish or online.

In addition to cash, cheques, debit and credit cards are accepted at the mobile unit.

Morgan said that for convenience, queries can be made at the office for the Property Tax Unit at James Warehouse Complex but payments cannot be made there.

She was part of a team at a Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA) Open Day at Brooks Park in Mandeville on Friday, providing update to persons on their outstanding balances, steps to address the situation as well as sensitisation on the importance of property tax.

Citizens were reminded that property tax pays for expansion and maintenance of streetlights, collection and disposal of garbage, rehabilitation of parochial roads, beautification of communities and for minor and social water.
