Building owners were urged to be cautious while making self-assessment of property tax and upload correct information during assessment.

As per section 94 of the Telangana Municipalities Act 2019, owners can take up self-assessment of a building for new construction or re-construction, which is not assessed in the municipal records. They can submit an online self-certification along with documents, sanctioned plan copies and property details on https://emunicipal.telangana.gov.in/ website and pay the tax to respective ULB.

Individual, who makes self-assessment, will be responsible for furnishing the information. After completion of self-assessment, an audit will be conducted for self-assessment made by the property owners.

In case, any deviation or violation is identified during the audit, the Municipal Commissioner will correct the assessment and levy the revised tax. In addition to collecting the actual tax, one-time penalty, which will be 25 times on actual tax, will be levied for filing incorrect certification and initiate penal action as well.
