This is in line with the Ministry’s plan to leverage digital transformation across various sectors, to enhance service quality, encourage equal opportunities, and ensure transparency.

Maait has disclosed the launch of an online platform that will simplify services and educate people about tax laws and procedures.

The platform will make it possible for taxpayers to go online and get information relating to tax dues on properties, debt payments, account reviews, and online tax payments for high-density property registrations.

Taxpayers will be able to pay their taxes online by creating an account on the consolidated property tax services platform.

Maait is optimistic that in the near future, taxpayers will be able to get an accredited electronic statement of their tax payments for preceding years.
