I am one of your constituents in TTDI
I like to bring to your attention some facts to dispute the lies perpetrated by the Minister and Mayor regarding above subject.
The only justification offered by the authorities for this unreasonable increase is that the property values have not been revised since 21 years ago. Since I have records to cover the past 21 years, I will share the actual history for everyone’s awareness. This will demonstrate with facts, the blatant lies being told.
Here are my records since I moved into my property:-
|Year||Valuation||Rate||Tax||% increase in valuation|
The 2014 proposed increase is unreasonable and definitely unacceptable.
If the rate remains at 6%, then the tax would also show a 145% increase!!
You can see from the above table that it was only 4 years ago that the valuation was revised by 22%. So, where did they get this justification that it was 21 years ago!!
I like you to raise this and expose the blatant lies in the pursuit of the objections to City Hall. Thank you.
