Editor / With contributions from Jazmín Stengel. – Discounts on property tax of fifty-, fifteen- and five percent will be offered by the Municipality of Chapala for those who pay their property tax on time, from January to April 2022. Additionally, a fifteen percent discount is being offered to those who pay their potable water service bills during the month of January. The fifty percent discount on property tax will be applied to pensioners, retirees, people with disabilities, widows, widowers and people over 60 years of age.
The Municipality of Chapala, through its Social Communication Department, stated that four collection boxes and four collection terminals have been set up in the Municipality of Chapala facilities located at Avenida Francisco I. Madero 202, as well as a mobile box that will go to condominiums and ‘cotos’ so that people do not have to go to the municipal capital to make their payments.
So far the response to the tax initiative has been positive, although no official tally has been made as to how much municipal coffers have taken in during the first days of the year. In the next few days, the municipality expects to activate a digital platform so that citizens, who do not want to go in person to the City Hall facility, can pay their property tax from the comfort of their homes. The online option will not be available for water bills, however.
The Municipality says that the payment process has been operating very smoothly, and facilities are complying with sanitary measures to avoid the spread of the coronavirus. People will not have to wait long to make their property tax and water payments.
As noted, pensioners, retirees, people with disabilities, widows, widowers and people over 60 years of age are eligible for the fifty percent discount on property tax. A discount of fifteen percent will be applied to general citizens who make their property tax payments during the months of January and February, and a five percent discount will be applied to those who pay during the months of March and April.
The fifteen percent discount on payments of potable water bills will apply for taxpayers only during the month of January.
Payments may be made at the windows from Monday to Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
