The Kingston and St Andrew Corporation (KSAC) says it has received approximately 100 applications from persons seeking relief from property taxes.




In April, the KSAC set up a property tax discretionary relief committee for property owners who are experiencing hardships and are unable to make payments.



Deputy Mayor Andrew Swaby says assessments have begun on the applications and it is expected that the process will be completed within another two weeks.



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.
