Penalty on delay in Thane property tax
Under the government of Maharashtra Gazette Extraordinary Part Four No. 14-27 April 2010 and the Maharashtra Municipal Corporation Act, property owners in Thane are liable to pay 2% of such tax for each month or part thereof after the last date on which the tax was due, as penalty for delay. The tax payer will continue to be responsible for paying such a penalty until the full amount is paid. Failure to pay the property tax on time (within 90 days) will increase the penalty interest and the tax payer will be liable for other legal actions.
In case you have to pay a penalty for late payment of your property tax in Thane, the TMC will first deduct the recovery expenses at the time of the payment. After this, the outstanding bills will be collected.
As a last resort, the TMC can seize the properties, if its owners fail to pay their property tax for a delayed period. In 2020, for example, the TMC sealed a total of 4,312 properties for non- payment of property tax.
