Two-hundred-and-eighty-six residents of the Corporate Area who are finding it difficult to pay their property taxes have applied to the Kingston and St Andrew Corporation (KSAC) for relief.
Many residents had complained that they are not in a position to make payments in light of the hard economic climate as well as the increase in property taxes.
In response to these concerns the KSAC set up a property tax discretionary relief committee in April for property owners who are finding it difficult to pay their property tax.
Town Clarke Errol Greene says 189 of the applications were found to be incomplete and have been returned to the applicants.
Greene says the remaining 97 applications have been processed and verification investigations were conducted.
He says so far 20 applications have been found to be in good order and have been submitted to the Minister of Local Government for a final decision.
To qualify for the property tax relief, applicants must reside at the property and must not be in arrears.
They are also required to make a minimum payment of 25 per cent of the current fee and show proof of income.
Application forms are available at the offices of the KSAC, tax offices and on the website of the Ministry of Local Government.
