The internet has made our lives simpler. You no longer need to stand in long queues at the tax office to pay your property tax. This post enlists the exact steps involved in online property tax payment.
All types of real estate assets are taxable. Be it a residential property, commercial property, or even land; if you own any kind of real estate, you are required to pay property tax for the same every year. Thanks to the internet, you now no longer need to visit a municipal office to pay property tax. The different municipalities departments now have their official websites where you can pay property tax online within minutes. Let us have a look at the documents required for paying property tax and the exact steps you should follow:
Documents Required for Paying Property Tax Online
You don't need any documents to pay property tax if you have the property tax bill, which is generally delivered by your municipality to the address of the property. This bill has all the details that you'd be required to enter while paying house tax online. Now that you know the documentation, check the steps of online property tax payment.
Steps for Paying Property Tax Online
Step 1: Visit the Official Website of Your Municipality
There is no single website where all the residents of a city or state can pay their property tax. All the different municipalities have their own official sites. Visit the official website of your municipality and visit the same for paying property tax.
Step 2: Look for Property Tax Option
Select the ‘Property Tax’ option and you'd be asked to select the property type - Residential or Commercial. Make sure that you make the right selection to avoid any errors.
Step 3: Enter Your Property Tax Number
You’ll now be asked to enter your Property Tax Number or Revenue Survey Number or Khatha Number. You can find this on your property tax bill. After entering this number, you need to select the assessment year for which you want to pay the home tax online.
Step 4: Verify Details
As you enter the Property Tax Number and Assessment Year, you will see a form with all your property details such as owner’s name, total area, usage type, etc. Check these details carefully to make sure that the details entered are accurate. At the bottom, you will see your total outstanding property tax, which should be the same as the amount mentioned on the property tax bill.
Step 5: Select Payment Method
If all the details are correct, go ahead and select the payment method. Most municipalities allow payments through Internet Banking, Credit or Debit Card. You will then be redirected to the payment portal from where you can complete the payment.
Step 6: Receive Challan
If the transaction is successful, you will receive a challan or receipt for the same. Take a print out of this receipt for future reference. You have successfully paid your property tax.
Online Property Tax Payment- Simple and Quick
As every municipality has its own website, the online property tax procedure can slightly vary from what is mentioned above. However, in most cases, it is more or less the same. Online payment of property tax is simple and allows you to make the payment within minutes. Make sure that you always pay the property tax before the due date as late payments attract fines as high as 20%.
