Property Tax Assessment

Property Tax assessment procedure is same for private and leased properties. The property is assessed at least once in every three years under Section 66 to 71 of Cantt Action 1924 (II of 1924). Property is assessed in advance before the next three years period starts. It includes detail of apportions within the covered area for both commercial and residential. Then proposed, existing and previous annual rental values for the considered duration are written on assessment form. Finally the assessed amount of the particular property is sent in the form of notice under section 68 to owner. He may put any objection on this assessed value within 30 days of the receipt of notice. If owner applies for objection, he is issued a notice to present himself before assessment committee on the given date for justification. When the owner accepts the Board assessed value, its entry is made in the Assessment list register under Section 66 of the Cantonment Act, 1924.
