Hike in Joburg tariffs

2012-07-18 15:09

Municipal tariffs in the City of Johannesburg have increased six percent with effect from July 1, the municipality said.

“The new tariffs were detailed in the City’s 2012/13 budget and approved by the council,” spokesperson Nthatisi Modingoane said today.

Property rates were levied in terms of the Municipal Property Rates Act, based on a property’s market value.

The city determined categories of properties which should be rated through its property rates policy.

Following consultation, it was proposed that the increase in property rates should not exceed the rate of inflation.

Hence the increase of six percent across all categories of properties.

“Religious properties are not rateable, hence the tariff is recorded as zero (in the table),” he said.
