BBMP Property Tax 2023Payments Detail @

BBMP Property Tax: In a meeting held on March 28th, 2023, the Mangaluru City Corporation decided to review the recent hike in property tax.

The opposition Congress strongly disagreed with the decision. Under the new changes, property tax will be calculated based on the assessed value of the property, resulting in an increase of up to 70% for properties located in select areas.

The government also plans to revise the guidance value of certain properties. Officials have prepared a report on guideline values, which has been submitted to the Deputy Commissioner for review. Once reviewed, these reports will be forwarded to the Central Valuation Committee for approval.

The due date for BBMP property tax payments for 2022-23 is March 31st, 2023. According to the BBMP administration, revised property tax returns for 2022-23 can be filed until this date.

The agency has stated that downward revisions of property taxes are not allowed. Any differential amounts can be paid online or through designated bank branches using challans. It is mandatory to declare advertisement hoardings and telecommunication towers if any. Citizens in need of assistance should contact the nearest BBMP office.

What Exactly Is The BBMP Property Tax?

The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) imposes a property tax on property owners in Bangalore to generate revenue for improving infrastructure and living standards for the city’s residents.

Property tax is a mandatory tax levied by all states on physical assets, including residential, commercial, and rented properties.
