If we coulda see where the money going, i pretty sure nobody would feel like they are being taken advantage of.

Precisely. That's why it should be the regional corps collecting it and using it for works in the areas from which it was collected, and IF anything remains left over those funds can be routed to the next nearest corp with a revenue shortfall.

But these dutty useless nasty dense but feel they bright & everybody else dotish politicians eh realize people not as dotish as they hope, and busy sharpening their jagged rotten teeth and salivating over the idea that they can get free monney from the public, by coming up with new ways to squeeze the entire population for money they they will pay & see zero benefit from paying.



only in this country you would find this bs, and some jackasses in the population that happily support it while they themselves industriously ketchin they rass.

Tuntsy, Colos, Tokesy one eye and the rest f the LFD RFD PNM moron band, but hey house 'groids gon house 'groid :|

It designed to keep Africans from owning homes.

Red government is in one big gentrification drive.

Guys anyone have a similar situation:

I submitted the form the first time they asked - simple small house so no issue.

A rep came and validate the external measurement and document the internal structure - Note he did not go inside.

After all of the above a form was given to me yesterday again - Are these people OUT OF THEIR MIND- Only in Trinidad you do the same activity and expect a different result.

Tried calling the office but typical no one answered.

Guys the office replied to my Email stating a second form is not required.

You keep referring to hyperinflation as if it is anything close to happening here.

Hyperinflation, generally described as a series of rapid, excessive, and out-of-control price increases, is rare in developed countries. That's because a true hyperinflation has to meet a high bar—an inflationary rate of 1,000% or more per year, according to most economists. https://www.investopedia.com/are-we-in- ... on-5093627


Core inflation is below 2%, food inflation is creeping up due to global prices but "hyperinflation" claims are hysterical.

Yes son, a mass exodus.
Because when it kicks in, rent will increase significantly, while tenants salaries will remain stagnant as usual. And when people realize that they ketchin their own personal hell trying to make ends meet and it's because of an action that the government took, what's one of the first things they think about doing? Leaving the country, that's what.
I got no idea where you get that 0.11% from, but I wouldn't be amazed if you pulled that 0.11% out the crack under your back. So since you like numbers. Look some simple math. You have an apt complex, that has ten 2 bedroom apts, and each apt is assessed to have an arv of 42000, or a monthly rental value of $3500/m
42000x10=420000-42000=415800×3%=$12474/year. That's your tax for the year, never mind you still got your mortgage payment, that the tax liability will be added to, thus increasing your installment and you paying interest on it. You feel any property owner gonna absorb that with a smile? Keep dreaming. And I eh even mention that increase in water rates that will come with the implementation of that tax.

Everybody gonna get their ballz squeezed, and sadly is the people on the lower end of the totem pole gonna have to bear the most of the pain.

Dat alone eh go wuk nah.
Porcelain tiles, air conditioning, water pump, what kinda ceiling y have, etc, all increase the potential rental value of your home, thus increasing your tax liability.
That's why I can comfortably say, this isn't a property tax, it's a wealth tax, based on the idea that if you can afford the nicer things, you should be made to pay for workin hard to be able to afford it, for every year as long as you have it, all while getting absolutely NOTHING for your tax dollars.

They like it so. Let them take whatever they get and remain dotish and quiet as per the norm.

As s posted earlier it's .11% of our property value.

What's the value of a 10 appt building generating 420K in rent?

Using a rental of 5% of value...which may be high (.Raymond and Pierre estimated rent to be less than 4%).

that equates to 8.4M

12k is what % of the valuation?

Or
12k over 10 apts is 1200 per apt.
Land lord increases his rent by 100 per month.
Mass exodus of tenants....
A 3% variation in cost to the land lord is going to cause a mass exodus.
Ok boss.

You have any timeline on this?

Oh, so you feel is only 3%. Cool. So we discounting the pending increase in water rates because of it entirely. Ok.
We not looking at the fact that the mortgage company paying the property tax is NOT trying to see their profit on your mortgage decline by even 0.0001%, and will adjust your mortgage rates upward to account for the new tax + interest. Right.

It applies to you, and everyone else, because it makes every property owner a tenant of the state, no matter that you alone bought or built your property or how much it cost you to do so.
