PUNE: Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) will send property tax bills through emails. Due to the coronavirus outbreak, PMC has not been able to print and circulate the bills. The PMC property tax department has also cleared that if taxpayers pay bills before or on 30 April 2020, they will get 5 to 10 per cent of rebate in bills.
Property tax is one of the major revenue sources of PMC. Every year, the property tax department uploads the information in the system, printing and circulating the bills by post for the new fiscal year in April. However, due to COVID-19 outbreak, the corporation has uploaded property tax bills for the year of 2020-21 in the system, but they did not print the bills.
Vilas Kanade, Property Tax Department Head, said, “In the present situation, it was not possible to print and circulate bills to taxpayers. However, taxpayers should not face any problem paying the bills. PMC has decided to send bills through emails and give alerts through SMS. There are 10.50 lakh taxpayers in the city. Out of that, PMC has the data of mobile numbers of nine lakh taxpayers.”
