May 15 is Last Day to Apply for Property Tax Credits

Virgin Islanders property owners are reminded that Thursday, May 15 is the last day to apply for property tax credits against the 2013 and 2014 property tax bills. Property owners who have not previously applied for property tax credits are encouraged to apply.  Applications for the tax credits can be found online at www.ltg.gov.vi and at Tax Assessor’s Offices throughout the territory. 

Property owners may not apply for more than two credits – homestead and any one of the other categories- for which they may be eligible.  In order to be eligible for homestead credits against the 2013 and 2014 property tax bills, a person must be the property owner of record as of January 1 for the applicable tax year. 

Tax credits are available in the following categories:   General Homestead, Veterans, Seniors, Disabled, Class 1 Inheritance, Visitable Home and Tax Credit Circuit Breaker.  Tax credits are also available for Virgin Islands farmers.

Property owners who may be eligible for these tax credits are encouraged to visit the Tax Assessors Office on their respective island or contact the (340) 776-8505 in St. Thomas, 776-6737 on St. John, 773-6459 for Christiansted or 772-3115 for the Frederiksted office.
