E-payment of property tax is not allowed at present
The taxpayer can pay their income tax in the respective offices or they can log in to the official website and pay their tax online. The tax calculator is official software that calculates the property tax when the taxpayer provides the required information. Resident from Jakkur, D S Sridhar used the tax calculator to calculate his property tax and found that the dues increased to ninety percent from last year.
Senior officials from the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike met the officials from the National Informatics Center regarding the issues on the property tax using the tax calculator. The officials said that they will update the tax calculator software and then they will allow the taxpayers to use it to pay their property tax. N Manjunath Prasad, the Commissioner of Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike said in an interview with The Hindu that they will update calculator software and they will examine it before it is open to the taxpayers. There were certain things that must be included in the software like the refund for the servicemen, and they will adhere to these criteria as well.
The Commissioner also said that if any problems or issues arise during the updating process the officials will address to it and rectify the bugs before the release of the software to the public. And if no bugs arise during the updating process the tax calculator software will be available to the public within three days. The BBMP restricted the hike in the property tax to twenty five percent of the commercial properties and twenty percent of the residential properties, because of the serious opposition from the residents and political parties. And for the taxpayers who have already paid their property tax, they will adjust the difference in the dues for the next year.
