SUBANG Jaya City Council (MBSJ) is offering a RM15 rebate to the first 75,000 ratepayers who pay their 2023 assessment taxes in full for two terms before Feb 28.
The rebate is subject to certain conditions, such as payment through four specific channels and full payment for two terms completed with no arrears. It is on a first come, first serve basis.
The payment channels are: EzyMBSJ website, Ezypay mobile app, e-masspro system and kiosk machines with payment through credit card and ewallets only.
“This rebate is offered as a token of appreciation to earlybird ratepayers and to encourage online cashless payment,” said outgoing Subang Jaya mayor Datuk Johary Anuar.
He disclosed that the incentive would cost the council RM1.1mil.
He said MBSJ had a similar offer last year, where a RM5 rebate was offered for assessment tax payment through the Shopee app.
“We believe that ratepayers will appreciate this type of rebate, compared to the earlier years’ incentives such as free umbrellas,” he said at a groundbreaking ceremony for the redevelopment of Medan Selera MBSJ SS19 food court in Jalan SS19/6 in Subang Jaya yesterday.
Johary said the RM15 rebate would be credited into the customer’s account after adjustments are completed for the second term tax payment period.
The rebate will be valid for 2024’s assessment tax payment.
Johary said MBSJ had posted reminders on the assessment tax payment deadline on its social media platforms and through SMS. The SMS reminder is only available to those who are registered on EzyMBSJ.
The ceremony marked his last public event as Subang Jaya mayor, as he subsequently reported for his new role as Selangor State Economic Planning Unit (Upen) director and Selangor state deputy secretary (development) the same day.
He said his new role at the state government was effective Jan 30.
Subang Jaya deputy mayor Mohd Zulkurnain Che Ali will temporarily head MBSJ until a replacement for the mayor’s post is announced.
“One of the projects that I will be prioritising as Upen director is flood mitigation. This includes a flood reservoir in USJ1, Subang Jaya,” said Johary.
Subang Jaya assemblyman Michelle Ng said the redevelopment of Medan Selera MBSJ SS19 had been five years in the making.
She hopes the new food court will benefit both hawkers and visitors.
There are 20 stalls and facilities such as toilets, surau and a parking lot consisting of 90 bays for cars, 16 for motorcycles and four for the disabled.
The RM2.98mil project occupies a 0.74ha site. Construction started in December 2022 and is expected to be completed in October.
“The existing 13 hawkers will be allowed to trade next to the construction site and relocated to the food court after its completion. The remaining stalls will be offered to MBSJ’s list of interested applicants.
“Although this redeveloped food court will be similar to Medan Selera Puchong Permai that was launched last year, Medan Selera MBSJ SS19 will have better features and facade,” said Johary, adding that Medan Selera Taman Seri Serdang has been identified for MBSJ’s next upgrade.
