Property Tax

 

What is property Tax?

 

Property Tax is the charge placed by Government on Real Property. The Tax is an Ad valorem Tax i.e. The Property is assessed at Market Value and a Taxable rate is applied based on the Land use classification.

 

Valuation takes into account the following:

 

 · Location

 · Land prices in the area

 · Developmental potential & Land use in the area.

 · Type of Land (quality & nature of the soil).

 · Size of land and other relevant factors.

 · Condition, quality and age of building(s).

 

Who pays the Tax?

 The Tax is payable by the property owner, as well as occupiers of buildings on extended family land. Tenants of property are also entitled to pay Property Tax where an arrangement is stipulated in the Lease Agreement.

 

NB: The Tax is made payable to the Government of Grenada.

Current Rate available:

 

Two separate rates are set for each class of property. A rate for the Building and the other for land.

 The rates are as follows:

 

 Classification                   Land            Building

The remaining Assessed Value is multiplied by the classification rate. Cultivated agricultural lands are also entitled to an exemption but must first get a certificate from the Chief Agricultural Officer, before the classification is converted to cultivated Agricultural.

The tax is borne by the owner and payable from 1st January each year. The property owner is entitled to 5% rebate (discount) if the tax is paid by June 30th of the given year.

The taxpayer has a choice whereby he or she can pay in two installments, the first 50% by March 31st and second by June 30th.

If the tax remains unpaid by August 29th, 10% penalty shall be applied. Thereafter, interest of 2% per month shall be added to the unpaid balances.

All Property Taxes can be paid at the Inland Revenue Division on the Carenage, St. George’s or any District Revenue Office which is located in each parish.
