Penang lang recently was shocked with the sudden higher assessment rate imposed by the local council.
The assessment rate for the property I am staying in has increased an eye-popping 77%!
I’ve been asked by many people how they can lodge a bantahan.
So I’ve decided to write it down here so that you too knows how you can lodge your appeal or ‘bantahan’ to the MBPP.
Check your mailbox for the MBPP assessment. It looks something like this:
The new assessment rate is outlined in Jadual 2 – Cukai Dikenakan
And then you will see a box with the website URL you can log into to make an appeal, as well as your unique user id and password.
Visit the website – http://smartmonitoring.mbpp.gov.my/InternetBantahanPS/
This is how it looks like. Click on the button Sila klik disini, which will bring you to the page below. Enter your username and password (as given in your assessment letter from MBPP).
Once you are logged in, your property’s information will be displayed. It is the same as that shown in the MBPP assessment letter you received.
Enter your Alasan Bantahan in the box given and click submit.
And there you go. That’s how you submit your appeal.
Remember, the deadline is on 14 October, 2019.
