Lieutenant Governor Tregenza A. Roach, Esq. informs the public that pursuant to Act No. 8271, which establishes an amnesty period for taxpayers, penalties and interest of all delinquent taxes will be waived.
The Act waives penalties for the payment of outstanding income taxes and waives interest and penalties for the payment of outstanding gross receipt taxes for all tax years to assist taxpayers recovering from the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
“Property taxpayers may pay their delinquent taxes with 100% waiver of all interest and penalties. The amnesty period, effective January 18, 2020 is applicable until July 17, 2020,” said Lieutenant Governor Roach.
Amnesty payments will only be accepted in person or via postal mail through the Office of the Tax Collector.
“I encourage delinquent property owners to take advantage of the amnesty made available to them and to make prompt payments without fees or penalties,” said Lieutenant Governor Roach.
