Haiti Finance Minister denies 10 percent annual property tax payment on VALUE of property

Haitians are worried that they will now have to pay property tax equivalent to 10 percent of the VALUE of their home each year to the government. Haiti's Finance Minister says this is NOT true...

Real Estate For Sale

Finance Minister Jude Alix Patrick Salomon says the 10 percent property tax is not on the value of the property itself but on the "rental value" (valeur locative) of the property.

Hmmm... What is the "valeur locative" of your property?

What do you think?

If it is on the rental of their property I agree 100 percent as long as the government do not pocket this money for their own use but uses it to maintain the country.

10% taxes on the value of the property would have been disastrous since most Haitians are not working or getting Social Security to be able to maintain such demand.

Maybe it's time that people pay income tax and businesses paid tax on their business.

Le ministre des Finances, Jude Alix, Patrick Salomon, déclare que la taxe foncière de 10 pour cent n'est pas sur la valeur de la propriété elle-même, mais sur la «valeur locative» du bien.

Hmmm ...
