Nevis Premier Speaks About Property Taxes

Charlestown, Nevis
May 7th, 2008

As part of the Government’s policy of inclusion and transparency, Premier and Minister of Finance, the Hon. Joseph Parry is taking part in Town Hall meetings across the island to discuss the newly installed Property Tax Bill.  This is being done in collaboration with the Nevis Inland Revenue Service, in an effort to give residents of Nevis the opportunity to air their views on the issue.

Legal Adviser- Hon. Patrice Nisbett, Nevis Island Revenue Service (Ag.) Deputy Controller – Ms. Neva Manners and Inland Revenue Officer- Mr. Bryan Gillfillan, will all join the Premier on a panel to enlighten the general public on matters surrounding the Bill.

According to Premier Parry, about 20% of homeowners would be tax exempt under the new tax law.  Persons, who pay under $100 now, will be paying less under the new system.  It may be noted, therefore, that with this new arrangement, there is more scope for individuals to be treated fairly.
