Lt. Governor’s Office Clarifies Publication of Delinquent Property Tax Notice
The Office of the Lieutenant Governor advises the public that the delinquent real property list that was published applies only to those property owners who have been delinquent in their payments of real property taxes for ten (10) or more years. The list was published in the St. Croix Avis on Wednesday, May 25 and will be published in the Virgin Islands Daily News on Friday, May 27, 2011. The delinquent real property list can also be viewed on the Lt. Governor’s website, www.ltg.gov.vi.
Publication of the delinquent lists is mandated by VIC T33 §2496, which requires the Lieutenant Governor to publish the names of all delinquent real property tax owners. Property owners whose names appear on this list or who know that their properties are in delinquent status are encouraged to contact the Office of the Tax Collector in their district to make arrangements for payment.
