Shouldn’t the VI Government also publish a list of people whose tax refund checks are delinquent? People the government owes. Seems only fair.

It would be nice if this was an actual link and not a screenshot

Here's one that should work for you: ltg.gov.vi/departments/property-tax-delinquency-list/

This would be a good opportunity for current and returning Virgin Islanders to buy homes without a huge mortgage

Nice, let people get robbed by Wapa, high cost of food, but when they can’t pay taxes, sell their homes to some rich statesiders! 🤯🤬

The link may not work, but the Avis has published this three times in the last seven days. Ya know what? The animal shelter will be happy for all the extra this month cause that’s what this is worth. You own this property, pay your flipping taxes. Bitch about WAPA but at the same time remember you also have some of the cheapest property tax in the the US

Jane, we just recently received our refund … surprisingly, with interest!

The link does not work.
