Property Tax is one of the main sources of revenue for the ULB. Residential and Non-residential (Commercial) properties, situated within the limits of ULB, are assessed for tax. Based on such assessments, taxes are levied on the property owners. The information regarding all the new constructions, existing construction and modifications to the property, if any, are provided by the Town Planning Department for making necessary changes to tax assessment. The citizen has to register with the urban local body for taxation and assessments are made based on the physical dimensions of the property and other parameters to assess the taxes to the citizen.
