Early Payment Discount Available to Virgin Islands Property Owners

The Division of Real Property Tax will again offer discounts as an incentive for property owners to pay their 2013 tax bills in a timely manner.  Virgin Islands property owners can expect to receive their bills beginning this week, as the Tax Assessor’s Office has begun the process of issuing bills to all property owners of record as of January 1, 2013.  

A 5% discount will be available to property owners who pay their bills by October 6, 2014.  Property owners are encouraged to pay their 2013 tax bill before December 6, 2014 in order to avoid late payment fees. The deadline for filing appeals with the Board of Tax Review regarding tax assessments is December 23, 2014.

Payments for the 2013 property taxes and all past due years can be paid at the Tax Collector’s Offices 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 Est. Diamond (Dept. of Finance, Sunny Isles)
Lagoon Street Commercial Building No. 1 (Frederiksted)

Payments can be made in person or by mail. Property owners are reminded that they do not need to have their tax bill if they plan to pay their 2013 bill in person. Persons making payments by mail can enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope in order to receive proof of payment. Payments of checks, cash, money orders, ATM, debit and credit cards (Visa and Mastercard only) are  are accepted at the window. Property owners submitting their payments by mail are advised not to send cash.
