6,800 warrants issued for failure to pay assessment

SELAYANG Municipal Council (MPS) issued 6,800 warrants to owners of commercial and industrial premises for failing to settle their assessment.Council president Mohd Yazid Sadiri said the warrants with a RM100 attachment charge were for owners with over RM200 in accumulated arrears from Oct 21 this year.

“These owners must remit payment within seven days to prevent their movable items from being seized,” he said at the full board meeting.

Yazid said MPS collected over RM94mil in assessment as at Oct 31, out of RM109mil.

“As for arrears, we recovered RM6.2mil out of RM8.15mil.”

He said the council was running a campaign to encourage low-cost property owners to settle their assessment arrears.

He highlighted that MPS would waive the RM100 warrant charge for those who remit full payment by Dec 31.

“They will also receive 50% discount of the total amount owed,” he said, adding that campaign details were available at MPS payment counters.

Meanwhile, those who have registered to receive their bills online and pay via mymps.mps.gov.my are eligible for a lucky draw.

This offer is valid until Dec 15.

Separately, Yazid said MPS had extended the deadline for its parking compounds reduction campaign until Dec 31.

“The discount offered is RM10 for every compound,” he said, adding that MPS had collected RM263,000 out of some 26,000 compounds issued.

Yazid also said MPS would continue to place mobile counters at selected locations.

Payments could also be made via the Flexi Parking and Smart Selangor Parking apps, he said.

He highlighted that business owners could renew their licence via the MyMPS portal, make payments and print related documents.

He also reminded them to renew their licence before Dec 31 to avoid the 10% late charge.

He added that MPS had received RM1.5mil in licence renewal payments. — By FARID WAHAB
