The Tarkwa Nsueam revenue department at the end of the second quarter of this year sued 25 people in court for non-payment of property rate.

Most of the defaulters who were indebted as far back as 2007 till date were fined by a Tarkwa Magistrate court in the sum of GH¢1,264.00.

Mr. Niii Okia, municipal revenue officer disclosed this in an interview with the Ghana News Agency at Tarkwa.

He said the refusal of citizens to honor the payment of property rates had contributed to the low performance of revenue generation in the assembly, adding that the continuous failure to pay such taxes promptly will slow down development in the municipality.

He said his outfit will put up measures that will intensify the collection of property rates in the coming years.

Mr. Okia encouraged Ghanaians  to pay their property rates without delay to enable their leaders to initiate more projects in their respective communities.
