Residential use of property : 5 categories Non-residential uses : 11 categories. The expected rents for the category of usage depending on their zone were pre-determined for rented and self-occupied properties.

The property tax payable under the self-assessment scheme is a two-line formula driven calculation depending on the location as under (for residential property): While the same formula was applicable for non-residential properties in Group A. The formula for hotels, hospitals, industries : Where rv is ratable value, ba=Built-up area, (75% area @ full rate) r= rental rate fixed/sft/month m=months, t1 = total 1 r/2 (25% area @ 50% of the rate) d=depreciation, t2=total 2, t3=total 3, pt =property tax, and 20% = Tax rate).

  17. 17. APPRAISAL OF THE TAX REFORM • tax reform should address some of the following questions: • Is the tax understandable? • Does it need to be simplified? • Does the reform measure make any sense to the taxpayer? • Does the taxpayer understand the procedure to pay the tax under the reform measures? • Is the tax burden distributed fairly?
  18. 18. ACCEPTANCE OF REFORM • The Corporation was sensitive to the need for popular support for these changes. • An education program was part of the marketing plan for this reform. • City officials met with various interest groups to convince them that the benefits of this program would outweigh the increase in their tax. • The following are some of the steps that helped in gaining acceptance:
  19. 19. MARKETING SAS 2000 • Informative brochures were printed not only in English and Kannada • Meetings with Resident Welfare Associations & Trade bodies • Information through Press Media • Tax payments tend to be done over the last two to three days, so count down advertisement were issued
  20. 20. BENEFITS OF THE SYSTEM • The division of the city into zones was in effect to revalue properties on an annual rental base • This revaluation helped in the buoyancy of property tax overtime • Several properties in the lower end of the zones fixed during SAS 2000 would move upwards to higher zones • The objective of the SAS was simple and straightforward - to get property owners to voluntarily declare their property tax liability and to make timely payment. • City Corporations in the country who have shifted to an area-based system of property tax, there has not been even a single instance of revision of the values • In Bangalore there is an Ordinance issued by the Government to revise the tax
