The City of Johannesburg’s MMC for Finance, Funzela Ngobeni says the city is planning to embark on an educational campaign, to guide residents on the implementation of the valuation roll.
The campaign will also highlight the impact on the 2018/19 rates which came into effect at the beginning of July, following the re-valuation of Jo'burg properties.
Ngobeni says they are in the process of reviewing over 50-thousand objections to the increases.
What they are seeing on their bills will be the property rates as they are now before the objections have been finalised.— Funzela Ngobeni, City of Johannesburg’s MMC for Finance
If you received a bill that reflects the new value, you have an opportunity to pay on the old value, provided that you understand that when the valuation process is completed, the chances are that your objection may also be rejected and if it is, it means you will be liable for the rates that were billed from 1 July.— Funzela Ngobeni, City of Johannesburg’s MMC for Finance
