August 11, 2014

The Virgin Islands Daily News, St. Thomas

Aug. 11--The Division of Real Property Tax issued a statement Friday that it plans to begin issuing the 2013 property tax bills to Virgin Islands property owners in coming weeks.

The division also is offering a discount to property owners who pay their bills within 30 days of their being issued.

The bills are issued to all property owners of record as of Jan. 1, 2013.

The 2013 property tax assessments are based on new property values reflecting recent assessments that were conducted by the Tax Assessor's Office.

Exemptions, or credits, are available in the following categories: general homestead; veterans; seniors; disabled; Class 1 inheritance; visitable home; and tax credit circuit breaker. Although taxpayers can no longer apply for credits against the 2013 or 2014 bills, they can do so in advance of the 2015 bills.

Payments can be made at the following locations:

- St. John: Islandia Building.

- St. Thomas: Builders Emporium.

- St. Croix: 1105 King Street (Government House, Christiansted); 1131 King Street, Suite 101 (Christiansted); 4008 Estate Diamond (Dept. of Finance, Sunny Isles); and Lagoon Street Commercial Building No. 1 (Frederiksted).

The Tax Collector's Office accepts checks, cash, money orders, Visa, MasterCard, ATM and debit cards.

Questions can be addressed to the Tax Collector's office at 776-8505 on St. Thomas; 776-6737 on St. John; 773-1105 in Christiansted; or 772-0120 in Frederiksted.
