Ministry of Finance prepares to populate valuation roll
The Ministry of Finance has noted reports in the media with respect to the population of the Valuation Roll and wishes to respond to potentially misleading details. In order to complete the process in a timely fashion the Ministry has hired 248 individuals in the following categories: field assessment, information technology and business operations.
These positions were advertised both in the daily newspapers and on the Ministry of Finance website. Qualified candidates were shortlisted, interviewed and hired by the Ministry.
With respect to calls to households by the Valuation Division, members of the public are advised that only those who have submitted their contact information to the Valuation Division will be contacted. To verify the authenticity of any communication initiated by members of the Valuation Division householders should request the name of the employee and the corresponding Identification number during your conversation. In response, the representative will provide the date of the visit and the Officers’ names in advance. All Valuation Officers must present picture identification upon arrival.
Additionally, Valuation Division representatives are able to respond to request for authentication with the householders’ PIN (unique reference ID) once an address has been provided. Effective May 24, 2018 all receipts issued to the public from the Valuation Division include unique PIN reference. Earlier receipts may not have a PIN but members of the public can call the Valuation Division and verify their PIN by providing their address.
The Valuation Division can be contacted at 621-1715 exts. 8002, 8003, 8084, 8051 and 8054.
