All land taxes for the current year 2012-13 must be paid by Sunday, March 31, 2013.
Commissioner of Land Tax, Wayne Forde, has advised that failure to pay by that date would result in a penalty of five per cent of the principal being charged and a further fine of one per cent every month on the principal and penalty.
Mr. Forde pointed out that the last working day of this month is Thursday, March 28, since the following day, Good Friday, is a public holiday.
He noted, however, that payments could still be made up to March 31 through the online EZ- Pay system which was launched on July 23, 2012. To access this website the public should log on to http://www.gov.bb/, or the Land Tax Department’s website at http://www.landtax.gov.bb/.
