Mangaluru: Mangaluru City Corporation (MCC) has launched an online portal at Corporation Committee Hall on Monday November 1 to enable citizens to make Self Declaration Property Tax payments, check property details, and pay taxes. This will save a lot of time for both citizens and the office. The online services will be available for public use from Tuesday November 2.
Since April 1, 2008, MCC has permitted Self-Declaration Property Tax payments. Taxpayers have been paying their taxes in various banks and service facilities using different forms issued by MCC. To ease the process of service, an online portal to provide digital payments was created for public convenience in response to repeated demands from MCC citizens with the present administration’s encouragement.
It will help in online tax payment and also to verify property and payment details. Citizens paying taxes through online services will receive complete information about their previous payments along with pending and upcoming payments.
The portals have been updated with all the property categories including residential, commercial and non-commercial buildings across MCC limits. Tax payment amount and other details will be displayed as per ward wise building numbers. The calculations are fully computerised leaving no room for error in billing amounts. This will provide ease of access to the citizens.
Citizens are requested to possess certain documents before making payments through the online applications. One must register on www.mccpropertytax.in with your 10- digit mobile number and enter the OTP that will be sent to it. Then check if your property has undergone land conversion. In case of land conversion, enter details of the property given towards road expansion.
As per the press release, one must check for building number, khata number, property ID, address of the proprietor and enter other significant information and if tenants reside in your property, enter their details. People should select the road where the property stands and choose their property type like commercial, residential or non-commercial.
Citizens have been asked to enter accurate details of property and building area, and enter all the other required details. They are also advised to recheck information on building and floor while also verifying tax payment amount. The payment can be availed using net banking, debit card, Google Pay, PhonePe, and Bank transfer. You can also pay the taxes offline after collecting challans and paying the amount to any bank of your choice.
It is mentioned that citizens can contact their respective Zonal Commissioners or Tax Officers for more information on online tax payment services.
Mayor of Mangaluru City, Premanand Shetty, MCC Commissioner Akshy Shridhar, MLA Vedavyas Kamath, and citizen’s representatives were present at the event.
