Property tax is a tax paid on property owned by an individual or other legal entity, such as a corporation. Most commonly, property tax is a real estate ad-valorem tax, which can be considered a regressive tax. It is calculated by a local government where the property is located and paid by the owner of the property. The tax is usually based on the value of the owned property, including land. However, many jurisdictions also tax tangible personal property, such as cars and boats.

The local governing body will use the assessed taxes to fund water and sewer improvements, and provide law enforcement, fire protection, education, road and highway construction, libraries, and other services that benefit the community.

You can file RTI to obtain information to the Municipal corporation or the local self government to obtain information regarding the Garbage tax separately collected by them.

Queries like If, Can, Whether, Why, How etc., cannot be asked in RTI application as it does not come under Section 2 (f) of the RTI, Act 2005 which defines Information. We can only ask for those information which is in some form of existing records like rules, guidelines, policies, etc.
