Councillor urges people to clear property tax dues
| Sunday | 8th December, 2019
Kolkata: In a bid to collect property tax arrears, a councillor sat with the residents of housing complexes in Ultadanga and urged them to clear the dues at the earliest.
Earlier, Mayor Firhad Hakim had requested all the councillors to take up the issues with property tax arrears, to augment the revenue of Kolkata Municipal Corporation.
Hakim can waive the tax dues up to 50% and the penalty accrued on the dues up to 90%.
The KMC officials led by Ghosh will meet the residents and urge them to pay property tax at the earliest.
The civic authorities are seeking legal opinion on collection of tax arrears from properties where the owners could not be traced.
