To avoid the current crush at Chapala City Hall, taxpayers may want to hold off for awhile to take advantage of the outreach program planned by the municipal Catastro (land registry) office.
According to department personnel consulted this week, Catastro is once again preparing to send out a mobile unit to collect 2020 bills for property taxes (predial) at various locations during January and February.
The provisional calendar for this month includes visits to the following subdivisions and condominium compounds: La Floresta, January 6-11; El Parque, January 13-15; Cielo Vista, January 16-17; Lomas del Lago, January 20-21; Chula Vista Norte, January 22; Nuevo Chapala, January 23-25; Vista Alegre, January 27-29; Lomas de Ajijic, January 30-31.
Property holders are advised to inquire with their respective homeowner associations to confirm dates and times that are subject to change.
Catastro has temporarily suspended an online system for predial payments.
