“The MCRS visit comes following a presentation given by the Land Valuation Department at a 2016 Caribbean Regional Technical Assistance Centre [CARTAC] Property Taxation Conference,” a Goverment spokesperson said.

“The MCRS reached out to the Land Valuation Department and the Ministry of Finance earlier this year seeking assistance with their land valuation and taxation structure saying, ‘The Bermuda system was considered for review given the features of the system outlined during a CARTAC sponsored conference some years ago.’”
