Property tax 2024Understanding Property Tax

Property tax is levied on property ownership, whether the property is rented, owner-occupied, or unoccupied.

Our contribution for the property tax is one way where we can help to secure our children’s education, improve the medical facilities for the folks, and make park for all to enjoy.

Annual Property Value (AV) The AV is calculated based on the estimated market rental value of similar properties. Comparison can be made with rental listings on the HDB and URA websites.

Tax Rates for Different Properties

  • Owner-Occupied Residential Properties: Qualify for Concessionary Owner-Occupier Tax Rates
  • Non-owner-Occupied Residential Properties: Subject to Non-Owner Occupier Residential Tax Rates
  • Commercial and Industrial Properties (Non-Residential): Different tax rates apply

Calculation of Property Tax Property tax payable equals the Annual Value multiplied by the corresponding tax rates. For owner-occupied and non-owner-occupied residential properties, tax rates vary progressively. All other properties incur a 10% tax on the Annual Value.

Application for Owner-Occupier Tax Rates If you reside in a property currently taxed at non-owner-occupier residential rates but occupy it as an owner, you can apply for owner-occupier tax rates through IRAS’s digital service, “Apply for Owner-Occupier Tax Rates.” You can also track your application status within the same digital service.
