To make sure you are correctly taxed you should check a few things in your bill and other documents. First make sure all your parcels and objects are included in a bill. Then, check your share, area (m2) and value category for each object and parcel you possess.
Due to deficiencies in quality of data regarding properties there might be some errors in your bill. To avoid that you are incorrectly taxed there are certain things you should check in your bill and the other documents attached to the bill.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.
Please check the following:
❶ Are all your properties included in a Specification of Tax Liabilities?
Make sure that all objects and parcels that you own or possess in the respective municipality are included in the Specification of Tax Liabilities, otherwise you will risk having fines and interest that you are not aware of.
If one or any of your properties are not listed in the Specification of Tax Liabilities, you should contact your Municipal Property Tax office to sort out what is wrong.
❷ Does your specification of tax liabilities include any property that you do not possess?
If your specification of tax liabilities includes a property which you do not possess, you should contact your municipality to sort out what is wrong.
❸ Is your share of the property correct?
In the certificate of appraised value and in the specification of assessed tax your share of the property is stated. Is this share correct? If not, you should visit your Property Tax Office to sort out what is wrong.

If the value category does not reflect the usage of your property, you should contact your Property Tax Office.
❺ Is the area (m2) of your property correct?
If the area of an object is incorrect, you should contact your Property Tax Office.
If the area (m2) of a parcel is incorrect, you must contact your Municipal Cadastral Office.
❻ Is your property placed in correct value zone?
In a few cases, the exact location of a parcel is unknown. This means that the parcel may have been placed in the wrong area of the cadastral zone and thereby in the wrong value zone.
If you believe that your parcel is placed in the wrong value zone, you should contact your municipal office.
You can check your value zone in a few steps:
- Find out value zone number in the Certificate of appraised value.
- Go to value zone map and see where the value zone borders are.
- Determine if your parcel is located within this value zone.
❼ Is your address correct?
Make sure the address on your bill (first page of bill) is correct. Is it the address to where you want your bill to be delivered? Is street name etc. correct? If not contact your municipal property tax office to make corrections.
Having the correct address increase the chance of getting the bill delivered in time.
We recommend you to register your personal number. This gives you access to your bill on-line and other benefits.
❽ Primary residence
Do you use your property as a primary residence? Make sure you got your primary residence deduction. Please observe! You may only have one primary residence in all of Kosovo. To get the deduction also in the future – make sure to register your property with your personal number.
❾ Did you get more than one bill for the same property?
In case you get more than one bill for the same property, it can be registered under the same name – but with different spelling. This might result in double bills. If this is the case for you –please contact your municipality to make corrections and register your property with your personal number.
