In fact, all 1- and 2-room HDB flat owner-occupiers and 28,200 3-room HDB flat owner-occupiers will not have to pay any property tax when the revised annual values take effect from Jan 1 next year, it added.

Property tax is a tax on property ownership and it is payable on all properties regardless of whether the property is rented out, owner-occupied or left vacant, IRAS said.
