Property Tax Changes for HDB Flat Owners

With the new property tax rebate for HDB owner-occupiers and the ongoing
1994 GST Rebate, all 1- and 2-room HDB owner-occupierswill continue to
pay zero property tax in 2010.

For average 3-room HDB owner-occupiers, the increase in property tax in 2010
after deducting the special rebates will be $72 for the year as a whole. For 4-
room HDB owner-occupiers, the average tax increase will be $97 for the year as
a whole. For 5-room HDB owner-occupiers, the average tax increase will be
$107 for the year as a whole, and for Executive HDB owner-occupiers, $103.

Combined Valuation Notice and Property Tax Bill

Owners of all HDB flats will receive their valuation notices and property tax bills
by 1 January 2010. Owners will also receive an explanatory guide on “Property
Tax on HDB Flats for 2010” - the guide explains how the property tax payable is
calculated and how payment can be made.

Property Tax for 2010 is payable by 31 January 2010
