Gov’t to appeal court injunction on Property Tax matter

The government reveals that it will appeal the injunction of the court relating to matters surrounding the Property Tax.

Media reports on Wednesday said that Justice Frank Seepersad sitting in the San Fernando High Court ordered that the Commissioner of Valuations be restrained from accepting property tax forms.

This follows claims made by Lawyers for former Agriculture minister Devant Maharaj that the property tax documents are illegal.

The order continues to June 22nd.

The Finance Ministry had informed citizens that they can continue to submit their property tax valuation forms on a voluntary basis.

However, Stuart Young, Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister confirmed at the weekly post cabinet meeting briefing at the Diplomatic Center, St Ann’s that the state plans to challenge the injunction.
