2019 Property Taxes are due! Security Title’s tax specialist Elisha Blas reminded me that the first installment of Guam’s real property taxes are due February 20th. You have the option to pay your tax bill in full, or split it into two payments with the first half being due February 20th and the second half being due April 20th. You might not know, but if you purchased property AFTER March 4th of 2019, you most likely will NOT receive a tax bill in the mail, but you still owe the tax. To make payment, take a copy of your deed to Rev & Tax in Barrigada and ask for the tax bill. You may be entitled to a break on your tax bill, check out the list below and see if any of these exemptions might apply to you: 1. Home Exemption 2. Senior Citizen Tax Credit 3. Government Used Land 4. Permanent Disability Tax Credit 5. Property used exclusively for public road or easement 6. Property used exclusively for educational, religious, or other eleemosynary (charitable) purposes 7. Property included in any cemetery in use as such, and not conducted for profit 8. Land registered by the owner as Bona fide Farmer. Documents are available on line at www.govguamdocs.com Our property tax payments help to maintain and improve our roads; they contribute to supporting our teachers and funding our schools as well as providing salaries for our firefighters and public safety officers. It is our tax dollars that support Guam Memorial Hospital, our sole public hospital. It may seem strange, but I am proud of the real property taxes I pay to contribute to this gorgeous island home of ours.
