Assessment to be reduced
Assessment Tax Rate In Ipoh Reduced To 10 Per Cent
IPOH, Dec 31 (Bernama) -- Beginning Friday, flat, apartment and condominium owners here will only have to pay assessment rate of 10 per cent.
Mayor Datuk Roshidi Hashim said the new rate would take effect on the first day of 2010 following a decision by the state government recently.
Hence, he hoped the owners of such premises would not be confused with the old assessment tax rate stated in their bills received earlier.
"All bills issued by the Ipoh City Council before this showed an assessment tax rate of 16 per cent. The charge will be amended to the new rate of 10 per cent when the owners come to settle their bills," he told reporters after chairing the council meeting here on Thursday.
