Jordan Provides Discount and Penalty Relief for Payment of Land and Property Tax — Orbitax Tax News & Alerts

On 16 March 2022, the Jordanian government reportedly approved a discount for the payment of land and property tax and certain other municipal taxes due for 2022 and prior years if paid by 30 June 2022. This includes a 10% discount for cash payment and a 15% discount for electronic payment in respect of residential and agricultural property used or rented out by a taxpayer. Where payment is made in respect of commercial or industrial property, a higher discount of 20% is provided for cash payment and 25% for electronic payment. In addition to the discount, where the principal amount of tax due for prior years is paid in full by 30 June 2022, the applicable penalties for late payment will be waived.
